We involve hundreds of volunteers UK-wide, who take on a wide range of roles, including planning and facilitating public event programmes, engaging people with British Science Week and governing the British Science Association.


All of these opportunities are reserved for our volunteers because we believe they are the best people to connect locally and we wish to give them the opportunity to share their enthusiasm for science, engineering, technology and maths; topics we know inspire passion in many people.

We offer a diversity of volunteer roles from fundraising to marketing, and you don’t have to be a scientist to volunteer with us

Our local branches put on hundreds of events in their communities each year, and always need help with ideas, marketing and logistics.
