Aberdeen Branch


The Aberdeen Branch formed in 1999. Since then we have organised annual programmes featuring lectures, discussion events and excursions.

We organise a range of different events in partnership with other relevant organisations. We draw significantly on the science talent available locally in Aberdeen and think creatively about involving wide audiences. This year we have been involved with the British Science Festival in Aberdeen.

In the past we have sponsored a sell-out session at Aberdeen’s ‘WORD’ festival on the best-selling book ‘Does anything east wasps?’ and co-organised a packed discussion forum on the topic of ‘Nutritional supplements: to take or not to take that is the question’ in collaboration with the Nutrition Society, the Rowett Institute and The Robert Gordon University.

The Aberdeen Branch of the British Science Assocation has a strong track record in bringing science into the public domain, through successful and often novel initiatives such as ScienceSnaps, Discovery Days and the Word Festival Sponsored Authors in Science series.

The Branch adopts an important role as a broker of ideas and opportuities in the North East of Scotland, and in the last three years has produced a comprehensive programme for National Science and Engineering Week with over 25 activities, reaching several thousand people.
