Banff and Buchan MSP Stewart Stevenson is urging constituents to participate in National Science Week, which takes place until 20th March and is co-ordinated by the British Association for the Advancement of Science (BA).

Commenting on the event, Mr Stevenson said:

“Many people believe that science is not for them and that they hold no interest for it. However, they should simply think again. In 2004, 47% of adults surveyed were aware of National Science Week. Over 300,000 people of all ages took part in National Science Week, with more than 1,500 events.

“Each year National Science Week plays an important part in connecting science with people of all ages. Over the past few years, a variety of television programmes aimed at different age groups have featured National Science Week, showing that science can be accessible to everyone.

“Throughout the week, many events will be organised across the country by a wide range of organisations and individuals including hospitals, schools, industry and museums. Venues range from shopping centres to pubs and churches. National Science Week is aimed at everyone from children and adults to decision-makers and I am sure that it will succeed in its aim to engage and inspire people of all ages with science and technology and their implications. Furthermore, it will help to promote discussion and understanding of what science, engineering and technology can and cannot achieve and hopefully it will take science to the public rather than waiting for the public to find science.”
