The Big Bang North West 2016 is coming and with it, The National Science + Engineering Competition! We would like to introduce you to some of the amazing judges who will be selecting our finalists and award winners.
This week, our spotlight shines on Lee Sweetman! Come July 5th, Lee will be quizzing our competitors on their projects. Take a look at his biography and top tips below! Have you entered yet? You could be showcasing your work at The Big Bang North West! Find out more here…
Occupation: Senior Engineer in the nuclear industry
Background: I enrolled on an apprenticeship after I left school. I worked as a technician (on a chemical manufacturing site) while studying part time (HNC/HND and Degree – paid for by my employer). I went into a technical role and now working as a Senior Engineer for a consultancy firm in the nuclear industry.
Why have you offered to return as a judge for NSEC at the NW Big Bang 2016? I liked judging at previous Big Bang North West events and l am interested in encouraging the students.
What’s the best part of judging? The diversity of the projects presented
Do you have any advice for the students who are entering this year? Enjoy the project and presenting on the day!
Fun fact about yourself: I have always enjoyed taking things apart (but not always putting them back in the same way!)
