According to the history, the British Science Association took the initiative to organise the first National Science & Engineering Week in the United Kingdom. The first event took place in 1994. This step was taken to provide a platform to people of all ages so they could produce projects related to science, technology and engineering. This platform remained quite successful and with the passage of time several organizers got involve into it and started arranging it throughout the country. As result of that today nearly people partake in the past event held in March.
National Science & Engineering Week basically provides a thrilling opportunity to its visitors to see various projects about technology, science, maths and engineering, related to everyday lives. The basic thought behind organising this event is to inspire the visitors and the judges with the new and unique scientific & engineering ideas and develop future scientists. Therefore, this event generates a lot of activity as several participants take part to showcase their talent. In the recent National Science & Engineering Week there were over 4,000 activities and events that were organised by 1,000 different organizers. Considering these fine numbers hopes are that these figures will further increase in the coming years.
