As a technology and engineering PR agency it’s fair to say we’re pretty committed to science and engineering. Whilst being global, our HQ is in the UK meaning we could hardly let the upcoming UK National Science and Engineering Week pass by without a mention. The event, which runs from 9-18th March, is geared towards sparking enthusiasm, awareness and interest in science and engineering and promoting these areas as potential career paths for young people.
The programme is coordinated by the British Science Association and is funded by Vince Cable’s BIS (Department of Business, Innovation and Skills). National Science and Engineering Week is an annual occurrence. 2012 will build on last year’s programme which saw around 4,500 events taking place across Britain in venues such as the Science Museum and the National History Museum. It seems more important than ever for the coalition government to be encouraging the next generation of British innovators following their mantra of a high-tech future for Britain.
This year, the theme of the National Science and Engineering Week is ‘our world in motion’: spanning from the movement of the earth, to the vibration of the smallest molecules and including everything in between.
