Loughborough University has organised another packed programme of events for this year’s National Science and Engineering Week (NSEW).

Taking place from 9 – 18 March, the week aims to celebrate science and engineering and their importance to our lives, giving people the chance to participate in science and engineering activities and experiments, and to engage in related discussions in their local area.

At Loughborough the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Engineering have organised a series of fun and interesting events for schoolchildren and members of the community.
