We had a great time, can’t wait to come back!

Nathan Prior – St Margaret’s Academy STEM Club
I didn’t know what to expect and thought ‘wow it’s really busy’. There was coding, model cars, experiments, a truck simulator, a talk about sensors and other stuff. The Accelerator Tunnel was really cool. We ran through it several times. It’s a 10m run and it times you to see if you’re faster than Usain  Bolt (I’m not!). It was great to see so much sciencey stuff under one roof!

Rebecca Johnson – Parent/Attendee
My son and I would like to say a really big thank you to you and your Big Bang North West Team for your wonderful organisational skills and putting together such a wonderful, eye opening day in Liverpool for the children of the North West. We had a tremendous day. It really couldn’t be improved upon. We were very impressed. It was wonderful to see 100’s of children being so enthusiastic about STEM subjects. Once again, thank you. The day was a total inspiration.

As a first-time volunteer I wanted to thank you and the rest of the MerseySTEM Team for making me feel so welcome and useful. The training session really helped prepare me and I found the whole experience fabulous. The ‘break out room’ was a great space to recharge and the treats were a lovely gesture. I chatted to quite a few teachers throughout the day and the feedback they were offering was positive – well done!
