CREST: NEW British Science Week Theme 2025

The British Science Association has just announced the theme for British Science Week 2025!

BSW 2025 will take place from the 7th to the 16th of March and the theme will be ‘Change & Adapt’. During the week, schools are encouraged to celebrate with STEM activities and events.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics can all be linked to changes in nature, technology, space, and more. So if you’re looking to plan BSW projects in advance, there are plenty of subjects to choose from.

Learners could also focus on behaviour and the adaptations we could make to create positive changes for the population and planet.

In Autumn, FREE BSW Taster Packs will be released with activities on this theme followed by complete Activity Packs in January. In the meantime, if you’re looking for inspiration you can download previous BSW Activity Packs or visit the CREST Awards website for resources and ideas.
