Welcome to: Cornwall Science Community (aka BSA Cornwall)

Welcome to the western-most branch of the British Science Association
BSA Cornwall – the western-most branch of the British Science Association

The British Science Association – the BSA – is a national charity that wants to see science at the heart of culture and society. Through its work in education, public engagement and collaboration with other sectors, the BSA aims to inspire people to get involved in all areas of science – whether it be natural, social, technological, or otherwise.

The BSA believes that society’s biggest issues cannot be solved by science alone. By unlocking the potential of a more diverse group of people, we increase our ability to tackle some of the world’s most intractable challenges.

NB: In the near future, following a restructuring of the national BSA, the current BSA Cornwall branch is planning to become an autonomous group, under the name ‘Cornwall Science Community’. Our vision for the new organisation is now rapidly developing. You can find out more on how we have been developing, and our plans, HERE

Cornwall was once – more than once – at the forefront of industrial and scientific exploration.  But now the fish and tin are gone (as the songs say), it is the knowledge economy that will take us forward.
