The West Yorkshire branch is primarily based in Leeds and recently has 'grown' a twig in Bradford that is a legacy from the British Science Festival 2011 in Bradford.
The West Yorkshire Branch is currently looking for enthusiastic, dedicated volunteers to join their committee!
This is a perfect opportunity to get involved in organising innovative and exciting events which engage the public with science. You needn’t be a scientific expert - non-scientists with an interest in marketing, events management, and finance may also find valuable volunteering opportunities with the branch.
Interested? Email Sabah Adams , Regional Engagement Officer, for more information about volunteering with the West Yorkshire Branch.
Please Note: Our regional Branches are run by volunteers over 18 years of age. If your enquiry is about volunteer opportunities for under 18s, please contact email@example.com 
National Science & Engineering Week 2012
As part of University wide events for NSEW 2012 the West Yorkshire Branch invited A-level and GCSE pupils from local schools and colleges to come and learn more about drugs in sport. Students were given the chance to carry out a mock drugs test and this was followed by a debate on the ethics of the use of drugs and gene doping in sport. This was funded by the Wellcome Trust.
