Plan your activities

Plan your British Science Week 2019!

Getting involved in British Science Week is really easy and you can take part in lots of different ways.

Organising your own event or activity?

Apply for a grant



We have grants available to schools and community groups to organise events during British Science Week. We are looking for exciting events which will engage audiences underrepresented in STEM. Our 2019 grants are now closed.




Organise an event

Running an event of your own may seem daunting, but we’re here to help you all the way, from writing your pledge, to applying for grants to providing activity packs.

Visit our ‘how to’ guides page for step-by-step instructions on how to organise an event,  find a presenter, how to arrange publicity, and where to find funding. There are handy templates to easily create press releases and press photocall invitations to maximise publicity for your event.

The packs encourage young people to think about everyday discoveries and how they affect their lives by exploring science in the world all around us. You can find them here.
