Inspiration Station: British Science Week

We’re so excited to celebrate British Science Week!
You can plan your activities 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 takes place from the 10th to the 19th of March 2023.

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 British Science Week 2023 is ‘Connections’ and packs are brimming with fun, exciting activities for school and home!

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.
