City of Liverpool College: £3 Million Science Lab to Launch with a Big Bang!
The Big Bang North West is a STEM celebration for school children and part of a programme led by EngineeringUK. The main event takes place on the 4th of July 2017 at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool, but All About STEM (the team behind The Big Bang North West) are offering schools & colleges the chance to host their own Mini Big Bang. Big Bang events enable young people to discover the exciting and rewarding STEM based careers available in their local area via fun, interactive activities.
The new lab was funded with £3 million as part of a £232 million Growth Deal secured by the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) in 2014.
Following a formal launch and plaque unveiling at The City of Liverpool College, Year 8 & 9 students from across the region will enjoy an afternoon of inspirational STEM workshops at the College’s Clarence Street Campus. Sponsored by the City of Liverpool College, it promises to be an amazing day of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths!
Schools attending include, Ormiston Academy, Weatherhead High, Upton Hall, Haydock High, West Derby School & Liverpool College and there is a substantial waiting list.
All About STEM Managing Director Michelle Dow said, “We are so excited about our Mini Big Bang and Big Bang @ School events leading up to The Big Bang North West.
