Are you stuck for ideas for your National Science & Engineering Week event or wondering where to start? Are you new to organising science, engineering or technology events or activities? You have come to the right place! Our website is packed with free downloadable resources for organisers who want to get involved in NSEW.

These guides present step-by-step instructions in how to arrange publicity, how to organise an NSEW event or activity and where to find funding from. In addition, Science on a Shoestring is packed full of ideas and top-tips on creating a big impact event with a very tight budget.

Our inspiring case-studies provide accounts of some of the best events that have taken part during NSEW and are segmented by organiser type.   


For National Science & Engineering Week 2013, we have added more guides to the how-to series:

NSEW in a day - a no-nonsense example of a day schools could organise to celebrate the week with minimal fuss and at a low cost.

Organisers' timeline - everything you need to know about what is happening in the run up to NSEW to help you plan your activity.

For a range of other practical guides and our curriculum linked activity packs check out our NSEW organisers resources.
