British Science Week

British Science Week (BSW): March

This is a ten-day programme of science, technology, engineering and maths event and activities that take place across the UK.

The Centre offers a special programme for pre-booked groups, plus an activity weekend and open evening for all visitors.

BSW at The Centre: 8th - 17th March 2019

Each year we celebrate British Science Week with a Spectacular programme when we launch a new science show.

This show is offered alongside a workshop and our interactive exhibits and, where appropriate the science show and workshop compliment the BSW theme.
See galleries below for themes of recent years.

This is a popular time for school visits and places are limited so we recommend you book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
