British Science Week at Liverpool Hope University: 9th - 16th March 2018
British Science Week (BSW) is an annual ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths run by the British Science Association. During the celebration, our Faculty of Science will be holding a number of fascinating, entertaining and engaging events and activities for people of all ages.
Having fun while learning is a key theme at Hope’s British Science Week celebrations. Throughout the week, our academics will teach pupils from schools and colleges about nutrition, artificial intelligence and VR, psychology, and dune ecology.
Held in our Health Sciences building and beautiful University grounds, there will be a wide variety of events including interactive workshops, talks by our PhD students, poster conferences and guest lectures.
There will be something for everyone, from a beginners introduction to different specialisms, to detailed explorations for college students considering a future in the field.

On Saturday 10th March all the events are open to the public and are all free!
