Celebrating British Science Week 2019

British Science Week logoBritish Science Week is a week-long celebration of sciences, with various events taking place all around the country (and the University!). To mark the occasion, we have put together a display featuring a selection of titles from our ‘popular science’ reading list and free British Science Week stickers. Check out the display if you want to know more, it will remain in the Library foyer (Level 2) until the 17th of March.

British Science Week stickers

3 different models of stickers, all available from the display on Level 2 of the Library.

We also wanted to celebrate the people at the University who made some great contributions to the scientific field. We used SciVal, a powerful analytical tool, to highlight a small selection of impactful scientific papers written by our academics over the last 5 years. Click on the ‘article URL’ to read an article, or click on an author’s name to see their University of Bath researcher profile.
