Merlin Entertainments The British Science Association (BSA) is delighted to have Merlin Entertainments on board as a supporter of both British Science Week and our Discovery CREST Awards. The British Science Association and Merlin are working together to deliver events, accross a range of Merlin venues during British Science Week in March 2017. Through our Behind the Scenes of British Science programme, a group of select Merlin venues will open their doors for an 'open house'-style opportunity, revealing the science at the heart of the places you'd least expect to find it. In addition to partnering on 'Behind the Scenes' events, the BSA is also working specifically with Merlin Venue Thorpe Park to develop a Discovery CREST Award for use during British Science week 2017 and beyond. CREST Discovery Awards are a useful introduction to project work for any age group and youth setting, and can also help to build young people’s confidence in project work before embarking on working towards CREST Bronze, Silver and Gold. Keep an eye out for British Science Week activities happening at a Merlin venue near you!
