National Science & Engineering Week (NSEW) is a ten-day national programme of science, engineering and technology events and activities across the UK aimed at people of all ages.
Anyone can organise an event or activity and the British Science Association helps organisers plan by providing free activity and support resources. We welcome and support any type of organiser, from schools to community groups and from parents to large organisations. The resulting programme of over 4500 events and activities, is a hugely varied and eclectic mix.
NSEW 2014 takes place from 14 - 23 March
