A HUGE thank you to our Big Bang North West 2016 Gold Sponsors, Sellafield, Unilever Ltd, Carillion and Kier and our Gold Supporter, Alstom UK. Their amazing exhibits and activities received top marks from our attendees, interactive and fun!
The Sellafield stand, presented a full range of hands-on activities to inspire young people about STEM careers and the nuclear industry. These included a timeline quiz about the history of Sellafield, a problem solving circuit board challenge, a glovebox challenge and remote controlled decommissioning activity – steady hands were needed!

The Carillion & Kier stand had interactive videos, personal protection equipment, sample construction materials, resources and a construction simulator!
