Each year the Aberdeen Branch organises a programme full of exciting events and activities for adults and children for British Science Week. You can find out more and view our current programme here.

The Aberdeen Branch formed in 1999. Since then we have organised annual programmes featuring lectures, discussion events and excursions.

We were involved with the British Science Festival in Aberdeen in 2012, have sponsored a sell-out session at the University of Aberdeen’s annual festival on the best-selling book ‘Does anything east wasps?’ and co-organised a packed discussion forum on the topic of ‘Nutritional supplements: to take or not to take that is the question’ in collaboration with the Nutrition Society, the Rowett Institute and The Robert Gordon University.

The Aberdeen Branch of the British Science Association has a strong track record in bringing science into the public domain. We work closely with local universities, Satrosphere Science Centre, Aberdeen City Council and other local organisations.

The Branch adopts an important role as a broker of ideas and opportunities in the North East of Scotland, and in the last three years has produced a comprehensive programme for British Science Week with over 25 activities, reaching several thousand people.
