Only 4 days left of National Science and Engineering Week!

But don't worry there are still lots of events to come all over the country. What could you do today?

As part of the Economic and Social Research Council's Festival of Social Science, also this week, today you could explore the phenomenon of Street Arts, which from 2009 will be the focus of a major four-year Olympic Legacy Trust programme across Cumbria. It asks why spectacles like La Machine in Liverpool and Mintfest in Kendal have captured the public imagination and how we can understand their wider benefits.

National Science and Engineering Week (NSEW) is a ten day celebration of science, engineering and technology which will run from the 6 - 15 March 2009. Last year around 1.4 million people attended over 3,500 events across the UK and this year we aim to make it even bigger!

National Science and Engineering Week is coordinated by the British Science Association, funded by DIUS (Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills), in partnership with the ETB (Engineering Technology Board) and is made possible by the hard work and effort of hundreds of event organisers around the country.
