Big Bang North West 2017 Review: STEM Ambassador Trans-Pennine Hub

It is always amazing to hear fantastic feedback about The Big Bang North West! A massive thank you to Jennifer Lobo from The Museum of Science & Industry for this sensational review. Jen manages all STEM Ambassadors for the Trans-Pennine STEM Learning Hub.

“I came to The Big Bang North West to get a better understanding of all the fantastic STEM activities, opportunities and things out there. I came for the afternoon and started with a brilliant VIP tour with Laura who picked out lots of great highlights from the exhibitors – I would have missed a lot of it if she hadn’t pointed it out.

The atmosphere when all the students arrived was great – they were so excited and each stand I went to visit they were so engaged and taking part in all the activities!

I went to see all the shows in the afternoon, a great variety of different STEM-related fun and it was great that there was a mix of primary and secondary students watching and enjoying the shows – the crowd was 5 people deep at the MSI show with schools standing round the edges!

I really enjoyed seeing the pupils projects – I liked the variety and freedom of the challenges, I enjoyed reading about the make-up, the lamp and the hydraulic arm. The part I enjoyed the most was the displays and demos from companies where STEM happens but I just don’t think about it – for example the demonstration of the challenges of pumping water and the energy loss involved with United Utilities, and the company in Construction Corner who were explaining and doing a demo on how road markings are made (I had no idea it wasn’t paint!).

I loved the aquaponics stand and the UV glow stick experiment with Liverpool John Moores and Royal Society of Chemistry – I’m going to try it at home and show everyone!!

I really loved my time at The Big Bang North West and definitely will be coming again next year – it’s a must for everyone, a real eye-opener of all the fantastic STEM opportunities out there! Thank you for a great day!”
