Inspiring Science: Lectures for A Level students

Inspiring Science (11 – 24 March 2013) at the British Library is a series of events and activities that celebrates science and scientists. The activities coincide with both Brain Awareness Week and National Science and Engineering Week.

  • hear from expert speakers and be inspired by their passion for the subject
  • ask questions
  • raise awareness of the range of careers open to scientists
