This year's NSEW
National Science & Engineering Week 2014 takes place from 14 - 23 March
There is no overall theme this year. We are keen to make NSEW a chance to celebrate anything related to science, technology, engineering and maths. Organisers have impressed us so much with their creative and innovative events and activities that we don't feel we need a theme. The sky is the limit!
For schools, though, Explore the future will be the common theme across competitions, new resources and online projects. Building on the enthusiastic response schools had for the Invention and discovery theme last year, we’re hoping this theme will encourage teachers and other educators to look forward to the world their students will lead and to use NSEW as an opportunity to add context, enrichment and excitement to the science curriculum.
What to do next?
- Explore the future- for primary schools
- Community garden challenge - for secondary schools
- Get engineering II - in partnership with Engineering UK (coming up)
Cracking chemistry, in partnership with Royal Society of Chesmitry
