Science & Engineering Week 2008

I may not be in the country at the moment but today marks the start of the annual National Science and Engineering Week (7-16 March 2008) run by the BA. Events are taking place all over the country covering everything from Toys and Forces (Surrey), to The Good the Bad and the Beautiful (York), to Dolphins across the Med (London), and Skywatch (Kendal). The BA are also running The Big Question blog in which they challenge the British public to ask the most perplexing, unusual, profound and puzzling scientific questions. So far these questions have included: "What is the highest number you can count up to?" and "Why are quarks impossible to isolate?". Answers are provided by scientists.*

* subject to the answer being known ;-)
