The Big Bang North West 2015: Amec Foster Wheeler
A massive thank you to our Silver Sponsor Amec Foster Wheeler. With one of the most popular challenges at The Big Bang North West, they had a lot to ‘handle’ themselves. The children just loved it!
Amec Foster Wheeler provides Nuclear Services to facilities worldwide from site management through to waste management and decommissioning. They have a number of offices in the North West including Warrington, Knutsford and Cumbria, as well as extensive research laboratories where they test material that is used in nuclear plants.
Amec Foster Wheeler is committed to promoting STEM with young people, allowing them to see and experience first-hand the opportunities and careers available within the Nuclear Industry.
At The Big Bang North West our attendees needed nerves of steel and a steady hand to take on the nuclear transport challenge. The children handled it well until they had to wear the correct protective equipment and use the remote handling arm – great fun!
As well as the handling challenge their was chance to guide Remote Operation Vehicles through a maze and experience Ultrasonics.
