British Science Week

British Science Week (BSW), run by the British Science Association, is an annual event celebrating science, technology, engineering and maths. It provides a platform to support teachers, STEM professionals and the public in delivering STEM activities and events across the UK.

This year’s British Science Week runs from 8 to 17 March with the theme of Time. This event is a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness of amateur radio in your local area.

Get involved!

Now is the time (excuse the pun!) to think about what activities you or your radio club could run to enthuse young people about wireless communication:
