There are several 'National Science Weeks' around the world but the idea may have started in the USA with the National Science and Technology Week.[1] In India Science Week culminates in National Science Day, which takes place each year on 28th February to commemorate C V Raman's[2] discovery of the Raman Effect. In Australia National Science Week,[3] which began in 1997, coincides with Sleek Geek[4] week.
