On the 31st of October 2016, All About STEM’s Managing Director Michelle Dow attended The Big Bang @ Parliament. Invited by Stephen Metcalfe MP on behalf of the Parliamentary & Scientific Committee with Engineering UK, the event was a celebration for Tomorrow’s Engineers Week & The Big Bang UK Young Scientist & Engineers Competition.
The Big Bang Fair is Europe’s largest science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) event for young people and The Big Bang @ Parliament aims to give politicians, policy-makers and the business community the chance to meet award-winning young scientists and engineers, and experience the careers inspiration behind The Big Bang Fairs.
The Big Bang @ Parliament is part of Tomorrow’s Engineers Week, a collaboration between the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the engineering community. The aim of the week is to bring engineering to life for young people and to promote the message that engineering offers rewarding, creative and well-paid job opportunities for young men and women, in a broad range of dynamic environments like music, sport, computer gaming, construction, fashion, film special effects and environmental technology.
