Following the recent success of our STEM Club students at the Sellafield Big Bang Competition, and the subsequent funding provided by Sellafield, 35 students had the opportunity to attend an all-day event on Friday 15th March 2019, at Birmingham NEC – The Big Bang Fair.  The Big Bang is the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics for young people in the UK. Everything at the event was aimed at showing young people just how many exciting and rewarding opportunities there are out there for them with the right experience and qualifications.  The pupils got the chance to watch two shows, the first by GSK looking at the spread of disease and the second looking at the most exciting experiments of all time.  They had free time to explore the stands and see everything from what cities of the future might look like to how we might meet these energy demands, to how some companies are trying to solve the plastic waste issues in our oceans.  The pupils were buzzing and had an amazing time.
