The Thames Valley Branch of the British Science Association and run Reading Science Week each year (part of National Science and Engineering Week). They usually have a number of student volunteers to help out at events – at the end of the week they can usually write something for the volunteers detailing what they have done to be used in their CVs, and they also support the RED award, and can complete forms for RED award students. This year Reading Science Week is 13-22 March and they have a range of events that volunteers can get involved with.
