Science, engineering and technology are essential to our economy, central to our children's education and now - increasingly - essential components of our culture. Science gives all of us fresh ways of looking at the world.
I am particularly grateful to William Waldegrave and his department for funding this British Association week. There is a great deal more to do in advancing public appreciation of science, and I hope that we may all do it together.
