Big Bang North West: Big Bang @ Tameside College

On the 19th of April 2018, the Big Bang North West facilitated another sensational Big Bang event hosted by Tameside College and sponsored by Greater Manchester Higher

Tameside staff & student ambassadors chaperoned and mentored school groups from across the region as they took part in interactive science, technology & engineering workshops.

Tameside College offered inspirational workshops in computing, CAD and manufacturing.

Students had the opportunity to develop their own project ideas, design a product and discover how to create them 3 dimensionally.

Pupils also took part in a tour of the manufacturing facilities at Tameside College and asked impressive and insightful questions along the way.

Engineers of the future!

Friends of The Big Bang North West (and the environment), Farm Urban hosted a fun, hands-on aquaponics workshop. “Aquaponics is a mini-ecosystem inspired by nature: your fish fertilise your plants and your plants purify the water for your fish.”

Attendees built their own Produce Pods, pitched their ideas and debated who had the best build and why. Imagine heading home & telling your parents “I built my own ecosystem today…” Epic!

Congratulations to all of our attending schools and thank you to Tameside College, Farm Urban and GM Higher – an amazing event!

The Big Bang @ School

The Big Bang at School supports schools to deliver an event to excite pupils about STEM subjects and inspire them to consider science or engineering careers.

A Big Bang @ School Fair can be big or small, you can invite local businesses to take part, involve STEM ambassadors, bring in activity providers or do it all by yourself. The important thing is that pupils have fun finding out where their STEM studies can lead them.

The Big Bang @ School is part of the wider Big Bang programme, led by EngineeringUK in partnership with over 200 organisations.
