British Science Week


Each year in March the Centre for Widening Participation provides a free hands-on science exhibition to mark British Science Week. The exhibition aims to:

  • provide an experience of science to reinforce and extend the school science curriculum
  • provide enjoyable and interesting science based activities for school pupils.
  • be accessible to as many schools in Ceredigion as possible
  • provide a range of activities reflecting different scientific disciplines

2018's theme is "Exploration and Discovery".

Previous themes have included:"Change is a Constant", "Everyone's a Scientist", "Science in Britain", "Explore the Future", "Invention and Discovery" and "World in Motion". 


The 2018 event will run over Tuesday 13th, Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th March.


At the University's Sports Cage, Penglais Campus.
