ICE announces Science Week programme

The ICE is organising activities for students and teachers across the UK for this year's National Science and Engineering Week (NSEW), to be held between 7 and 16 March 2008.

NSEW is coordinated by the British Association for the Advancement of Science in partnership with the Engineering & Technology Board (ETB).

It celebrates science, engineering and technology with a programme of around 2,000 events.

NSEW is a 10 day celebration of science, engineering and technology which sees families, schools, adults and children taking part in a fantastic array of events and activities across the UK.

ICE President David Orr said: "I'm sure that our programme of activities will inspire students, parents and teachers across the UK. Getting all three groups excited about our work is a vital part of attracting more kids into civil engineering."
