The British Science Association believes science is a human endeavour – it’s a way to ask questions about the world and test them out. It’s not just a list of facts – it’s a mindset owned by anyone who approaches the world in an open-minded, sceptical, logical, systematic, empirically-oriented, tentative and curious way. It applies in the natural and social sciences, as well as technology, engineering and mathematics.

The Huxley Summit took place on 8 November 2016 at BAFTA in London on the theme of ‘trust in the 21st century’. The Summit was produced by the British Science Association, and provided leaders both within and beyond science, to question, debate and agree radical new ways to build trust in science and technology to advance society.
The British Science Festival is one of Europe's largest celebrations of science, engineering and technology, with over 250 events, activities, exhibitions and trips taking place over a week in September. It is unique in the UK as it moves to a different location every year. In previous years it has taken place in York, Liverpool, Guildford, Aberdeen, Newcastle and in 2014 we'll be visiting Birmingham.
The programme of events offers something for everyone with activities for families and schools groups, adults looking for entertainment and stimulating debate, as well as events aimed at professionals interested in the latest research.
The British Science Festival is the flagship event of the British Science Association - a charity which aims to enthuse people of all ages and all backgrounds with science and it's impact on our lives.
British Science Week (BSW) is a celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths events and activities across the UK for people of all ages.
Anyone can organise an event or activity, and the British Science Association helps organisers plan by providing free activity and support resources. We welcome and support any type of organiser, from schools to community groups, from parents to large organisations. The resulting programme of events is a hugely varied and eclectic mix.
