British Science Week is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) that takes place in March each year. It is organised by the British Science Association and features entertaining and engaging events and activities across the UK for people of all ages.
British Science Week provides a platform to stimulate and support teachers, STEM professionals, science communicators and the general public to produce and participate in STEM events and activities.
Anyone can organise an event or activity, and the British Science Association helps organisers plan by providing free activity and support resources. They welcome and support any type of organiser, from schools to community groups, from parents to large organisations. The resulting programme of events is a hugely varied and eclectic mix.
Each year has a theme, such as “connections“, around which to plan events and develop ideas. Amateur Radio is a technical hobby involving electronics, physics and engineering and is a natural bedfellow for British Science Week events.
We would welcome approaches to participate in British Science Week with Amateur Radio orientated events, although as these events are typically on a weekday our availability is not always possible due to work commitments.
