Big Bang Fair
Thursday 14th March 2019
On Thursday 14th March all of Year 8 had the opportunity to go and see the Big Bang Fair at the NEC.
The Big Bang Fair is the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths for young people in the UK.
The pupils all had the chance to hear from inspiring engineers and scientists from some of the UK's biggest companies and found out about the opportunities available in science and engineering. They found out the careers in STEM range from putting on fashion shows to creating the next biggest roller-coaster or even creating new technology that can save lives!
At the fair was a huge Science show which explained the Chemistry and Biology of explosions. All the pupils were able to speak to lots of real scientists and engineers. They had the chance to ask them questions when they met them live on stage.
