Welcome to the British Science Association Reading Branch!

Our branch is based in Reading, where we organise events across the Berkshire region. We run monthly Cafe Scientifique events in Reading and sponsor the Basingstoke Cafe Scientifique. As well as the popular Reading Café Scientifique series, the Reading Branch also organises other events throughout the year. Each year the branch co-ordinates the programme for Reading Science Week which is part of British Science Week and runs in March.
