On Tuesday 2nd July, 45 students visited The Big Bang Fair North West at the Liverpool Exhibition Centre. This is an event that is used to promote STEM subject and careers and enables students to get hands on and enjoy themselves using Science, technology, engineering and maths.
Throughout the morning the students had an opportunity to ask exhibitors questions, and get involved with the activities on each stand. Some of the things that students tried were milking an artificial cow, riding a horse, presenting the ITV News and sitting in the helicopter form the film Mission Impossible: Fallout.
The students had a very enjoyable morning (and got lots of freebies) and hopefully this will convince some of them to look at careers in STEM in the future.
