On the 5th of July 2016, thousands of local school children flocked to The Big Bang North West at The Exhibition Centre Liverpool and the region erupted with ingenuity and innovation!
Hundreds of North West schools attended, grabbing their chance to hop on a Viking Longboat, race Usain Bolt and experience virtual reality, mad science, robots, coding, forensics, medical magic and so much more.
CBBC’s Stefan Gates performed some explosive science! If the flaming whoosh bottle wasn’t enough, the Gastronaut had vomit & strawberry scented smoke rings on the menu!
Science 2 U wowed the crowd with their pop-tastic cans, fire fountains and a dry ice extravaganza, while Medical Maverick Tom Warrender performed his ‘Human Guinea Pig’ show. Attendees were in awe of his ‘how to scan your retina with an iPhone’ demonstration and more!
The Big Bang North West is a STEM celebration for school children and part of a programme led by EngineeringUK. Big Bang events enable young people to discover the exciting and rewarding STEM based careers available in their local area via fun, hands-on activities.
