On Tuesday the 5th of July, The Merseyside Network for Collaborative Outreach hosted The MNCO Zone at The Big Bang North West. It was a BBNW first, with colleges and universities from across the region joining forces to create an epic educational exhibition!

The MNCO team were so enthused about the event that based on their amazing plans, they acted as our platinum-plus sponsor.
