The British Science Association is a membership organisation and the branches are key to its success. Active branches from Plymouth to Tayside enable the British Science Association to be a truly nationwide network offering events and activities for people across the UK.

Each branch has a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer. These key people, along with the other members of the local group, run a range of exciting events and activities. From lectures to SciBars, from science clubs for kids to trips to the British Science Festival, the branches bring the British Science Association to your area.

Visit the Find a Branch page to find your nearest Branch. Whoever you are, you can join the British Science Association and become part of our growing network of science communicators and enthusiasts.
