The Big Bang North West – Platinum and Key Sponsors
Sellafield has over 100 STEM ambassadors, based at their offices in Warrington, who support local schools and events, to encourage more young people to consider science and engineering as a future career. Sellafield Ltd will be displaying a range of interactive activities allowing children to try their hand at being a nuclear worker, by carrying out operations in a glove-box, operating a remote handling machine, taking the controls of a decommissioning robot or exploring the history of Sellafield. Young people will also have the opportunity to speak to their apprentices and graduates about working for Sellafield Ltd.
The National Health Service is proud to be a key supporter of the North West Big Bang Fair 2014.

AMEC is excited to be sponsoring the STEM Clubs Jamboree at this year’s North West Big Bang Fair. AMEC is committed to promoting STEM with young people, allowing them to see and experience firsthand the opportunities and careers available in such a diverse field. STEM Clubs play a vital role in this, allowing students to further explore areas that interest them outside the constraints of the school day.
