At The Big Bang North West, United Utilities were a huge hit with all of our visitors! As well as some surprising stories, they brought the waste element of their business to life with their fun and interactive ‘What not to Flush’ activity. Their Apprentices were also on hand to introduce visitors to ‘The 3 P’s’ and they even offered a STEM speed dating activity!
At Engineering Your Future, United Utilities provided hands-on experiments for our 6th form students. Groups had the opportunity to learn about water cycles and there was a presentation on how engineering is used to treat rainfall, clean our water and recycle it. There was also chance to discuss the numerous career opportunities and apprenticeships within the company.
