NSEW Ideas Factories

Looking for inspiration for National Science & Engineering Week?

Our NSEW Ideas Factory is just the place for you! The sessions are a great opportunity to find out more about National Science & Engineering Week first hand, get hold of a whole range of resources and exchange ideas with other organisers in your area.

These sessions are of particular interest to representatives from museums, local community & volunteer groups, charities and local businesses. If you are a teacher looking for NSEW ideas for your school, see our CPD Information Sessions.

This year's sessions are over. If you missed the sessions but would like an overview, you can download the presentation slides below.
