Women excelling in UK science and engineering


Welcome to the British Council's online science exhibitions. On these pages we present some exiting graphical ideas, which have been used to promote science and technology to a variey of different audiences both in the UK and around the world.

For starters, have a look at the posters designed for us by Andrzej Krauze, a regular cartoonist for the Guardian newspaper in the UK. Each poster depicts a recent scientific breakthrough by British scientists, or an area of science in which Britain excels. There is also a precis of the text of an article which appeared in the Guardian newspaper about the posters.

Also, we are proud to present the new promotional posters from the UK government's Office of Science and Technology (OST), aimed at making science careers more appealing to young women. These colourful posters have been used in schools throughout the UK. They can be viewed here and you can click on the pictures to find out more from the OST about women and science.

Natural Visions, an exhibition of fifty photographic prints by award-winning, wildlife photographer Heather Angel, is currently touring the world.
