Air Products Inspire at The Big Bang North West 2016!
The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition (formerly the National Science + Engineering Competition) is a national competition for young people to showcase their impressive science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) projects and to reward and recognise their achievements.
The semi-finals for this competition took place at The Big Bang North West 2016 and we had a plethora of prodigious pupil projects! The judges were overwhelmed by the incredible, inspiring and innovative ideas our entrants brought to the fore. In addition to a place in the National Finals at The Big Bang Fair in Birmingham, all entrants had the opportunity to win one of our prestigious sponsor awards.
As a business dedicated to encouraging STEM, Air Products generously sponsored our Inspiration Award as part of The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition.
