The University of Birmingham, in association with Birmingham City council and supported by Aston University and Birmingham City University, is proud to be hosting the British Science Festival 2014 on the Edgbaston Campus this year. The BSF is one of Europe’s largest Festivals dedicated to the promotion of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths subjects and attracts leading Science Communicators from around the world to deliver lectures, workshops and fun and exciting science demonstrations to students and the general public.
For schools, there are two main programmes. A pre-16 programme (Years 9-11) and a Post 16 programme (Years 12-13). All the activities are free to access.
For the Pre-16 programme, schools book onto a whole day’s worth of activities. The main keynote lecture every morning is highlighted for each of the days (Monday to Wednesday). Students will then attend interactive workshops, demonstrations and visit the Science and Careers in Action Zone and the day will end with another fun keynote lecture. The Science and careers in Action Zone will have science demonstrations, a careers speed dating area and students will also have access to Careers Advisers who will provide information about careers in the STEM subjects.
