British Science Week, run by the British Science Association is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths and spans across the UK for people of all ages. British Science Week provides a platform to stimulate and support the general public to participate in STEM events and activities.

At the Quest Academy, we celebrated British Science Week by themed assemblies on Science and looking at what science can do for us and how it impacts all our lives. Students were all encouraged to enter a competition on the theme of exploration and discovery. Entries are needed by Thursday 29th March to Miss Melling.

Posters must include the following information (entrant details can be on the back of the poster):

  • entrant name (all names if a team) and entrant age (all ages if a team)
  • age category (of the oldest team member)
  • school/youth group name and address

Prizes will be awarded to the best entry and to two runners up. The winners will receive a selection of exciting STEM related hands-on activities and books that may include “Augmentify It” augmented reality playing cards, experiments from John Adams or amazing Spy Kits from Project Mc2.

Good luck everyone with your entries!
