The Big Bang Fair: Middlewich sisters reach national STEM final
Two sisters from Middlewich have made it through to the final of a national young scientists’ competition after impressing at regional heats. The girls presented their potential engineering solutions for humans visiting different planets
Alia Nelson-Riggott, 15, and 13-year-old sister Amina are heading to the Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Competition final, which is held as part of The Big Bang Fair at Birmingham NEC in March 2017.
“We’re interested in space and in architecture so we thought we’d do some research into colonising other planets and the kind of structure you would build, and what you would use to build it, kind of like the interesting architectural projects on “Grand Designs” but in space which gives you lots more difficulties but also lots more possibilities. We’ve created a website and a short film to convey our ideas and also a recipe book!”
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.
