British Science Week at The Story Museum

Slime Stories and Cloud Factories at The Story Museum for British Science Week

The Story Museum will be welcoming young scientists through their door as part of British Science Week which takes place from the 9-18 March.

British Science Week, run by the British Science Association is a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths, featuring entertaining and engaging events and activities across the UK for people of all ages. British Science Week provides a platform to stimulate and support teachers, STEM professionals, science communicators and the general public to produce and participate in STEM events and activities. Anyone can organise an event or activity, and the British Science Association helps organisers plan by providing free activity and support resources. The resulting programme of events is a hugely varied and eclectic mix.

As part of the event the Story museum will be hosting a series of events over the weekend:
