Background InformationThe British Association for the Advancement of Science, also known as the BA, describes itself as seeking "to create a positive social climate in which science, and the organisations dependent on it, advances with public consent and with the involvement and active support of non-scientists." The BA particularly seeks to connect science with the wider public, through the organisation of local and national events, such as its annual BA Festival of Science, and National Science and Engineering Week.
