About National Science & Engineering Week 2011, (NSEW)
National Science & Engineering Week takes place March 11-20, 2011 and is a national celebration of the sciences and engineering. The theme for 2011 is Communication and it's open to any school or organisation to arrange an event to celebrate the Week, including museums and science centres round the UK.
