We believe that science is a human endeavour; it’s a way to ask questions about the world and test them out. It’s not just a list of facts; it’s a mindset owned by anyone who approaches the world in an open-minded, sceptical, logical, systematic, empirically-oriented, tentative and curious way. It applies in the natural and social sciences, as well as technology, engineering and mathematics.

The Science: Not Just for Scientists campaign aims to share and stimulate ideas for how science can work with those from all sectors – including the arts, business, politics and sport.

The British Science Association wants to look beyond what happens in the lab and help create a world where science is at the heart of society and culture.


In October 2015, the British Science Association (BSA) published a collection of essays. We challenged our contributors to start a debate on the place of science in our national life and what changes would be needed to make it a bigger part of our culture. 


100 ideas

This project aims to generate 100 ideas to make science a more fundamental part of culture and society. We are looking to crowdsource ideas from scientists and non-scientists about how science can belong to all of us.
