Community Initiative

We are all thrilled to announce that BGTB has been shortlisted for the prestigious Times Education Supplement awards in the Community Initiative category.

BGTB is a brilliant collaboration between the organising team, all of whom give up their time for BGTB without payment; our sponsors Rathbones Investment Management and Heriot Watt University; the volunteers who help us to run the day; St Mary’s School Melrose who host the event and whose staff give up huge amounts of free time to make the day a success and of course all the scientists who come along to a Saturday in September each year and inspire and educate.


We think we are the only Scottish school/event on the shortlist but we’re too busy this week getting ready for the next BGTB on Saturday September 17th to stalk all our competitors online…much.

Come and help us celebrate our success this Saturday!
