British Science Week

British Science Week

British Science Week10-19 March 2023

British Science Week is a 10-day UK-wide celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths that takes place in March each year.

PERU are always looking for volunteers to support each year's programme. The programme is different every year, with some regular anchors, so we are always looking for staff and students to get involved and come up with new ideas. 

You can also visit the national website to get an idea of what happens across the country. If you're interested in getting involved in the programme please get in touch.

Pre-Organised Opportunities in 2023


PERU need your help to showcase the diverse and inspiring teams and individuals in STEM. Share how you or your team are #SmashingSterotypes on social media by posting a photo, video, or simply telling us.

Get in touch with the PERU team if you are interested and we will share the social media toolkit with you to use on your social media platforms.
