Thank you to our British Science Week 2019 partners
British Science Week is an annual celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths that features a range of fascinating, entertaining and engaging national, regional and local events across the UK. The campaign provides a platform to stimulate and support teachers, STEM professionals, science communicators and the general public to produce and participate in STEM events and activities across the UK.
Last year, over 2,300 events, reaching nearly 1 million participants, took place across the UK. We also generate a large volume of media coverage and social media exposure.
With thanks to the following partners and supporters, British Science Week 2019 is shaping up to be bigger and better than ever.
British Science Week is supported by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, enabling us to deliver this large grassroots campaign that aims to position science as a fundamental part of culture and society, and reaches a diverse range of audiences, including those from disadvantaged communities and people who would not usually engage in science activities.
Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the opening of the tunnel the British Science Association has partnered with Eurotunnel for 2019, with the aim of sharing knowledge about this ambitious engineering project with new audiences. Kicking off with British Science Week, Eurotunnel resources feature in all British Science Week activity packs, with activities relating to rock layering, tunnels & signals and speed. Keep an eye out for more Eurotunnel activity later in 2019.
We are delighted to be partnering once again with Guinness World Records, who are supporting this year’s Poster Competition. In addition to offering a copy of their best-selling book Guinness World Records 2019 to poster competition winners, Guinness World Records is also offering a very special prize. Find out more here.
