Inspiration Station: British Science Week

British Science Week is coming and we’re so excited!
You can plan your school celebration in one go using our Inspiration Station. Here’s everything you need to know and a full collection of our recommended resources!

British Science Week is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths that will take place between 5-14 March 2021!

Each year, British Science Week creates a nationwide celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths for people of all ages with thousands of events and activities taking place across the length and breadth of the country. 

The theme for the British Science Week 2021 activity packs and poster competition is ‘Innovating for the future’. Packs are suitable for school and home and are brimming with fun, exciting activities!

Many of the activities are CREST accredited, so if you enjoyed using them, why not think about completing a CREST Award too? There are so many projects to choose from for ages 5-19.

British Science Week: Smashing Stereotypes

Speaking of STEM ambassadors, one of our inspirational STEM ambassadors, Krystina Pearson-Rampeearee is featured in British Science Week’s #SmashingStereotypes campaign.

‘Smashing Stereotypes’ aims to encourage STEM employees and researchers to share stories about their day-to-day work and highlight the diversity of the STEM workforce, the extent of jobs and careers available, and that scientists are just like everyone else.
