British Science Geek, Sorry Week.

British Science Week starts on the 9th March and is organised by the British Science Association and is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) with entertaining and absorbing events and activities across the country.

British Science Week offers a stage to inspire and support teachers, STEM professionals, science communicators and the public to create and take part in STEM events and activities.

Organising an event or activity is easy, and anyone can do it, from schools and community groups to parents or large organisations and the British Science Association will help you plan by providing free activity and support resources.
