British Science Week is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths that will place between 11-20 March 2022!


  We are thrilled to announce our theme for the 2022 British Science Week activity packs and poster competition – ‘Growth’!

A fitting theme for what has been a turbulent time for all of us, ‘Growth’ links with multiple areas across science, technology, engineering and maths. Whether you decide to explore plant growth in your window box or discuss the impacts of economic growth on our society, or even consider your own personal growth over the last twelve months, ‘Growth’ as a theme offers a huge range of topics to delve into as part of your British Science Week 2022 activities.

Population growth and urban development could be a fantastic topic to explore in our poster competition. Or how about the evolution of construction and engineering – have you seen how quickly a skyscraper can grow with modern building methods?

Human growth is another area that offers endless opportunities for investigation. Why not use the human life cycle as a brilliant topic for a school assembly, or create a poster which explores the building blocks of life?

We can find examples of growth within all subjects and all around us, making it an excellent starting point for a celebration of science!

We’d love to find out what ‘Growth’ means to you and how you’d like to see that reflected in our events and activities, so please do get in touch and let us know what you think!
