Big Bang North West: The Science behind Knowsley Safari!
Visit the Knowsley Safari stand to take part in interactive activities that seek to ‘unveil the science behind the safari’. Activities will introduce participants to topics such as animal identification, captive breeding programmes and animal records along with animal nutrition.
“Whilst nature is the physical, material world or natural world we share, we study it and understand it through science. Through technology and engineering, we must find ways of working with and conserving nature. And without maths, we will cannot develop our science, technology and engineering. Which is why at Knowsley Safari, we recognise that our Learning & Discovery team are in fact science teachers and we wish to inspire generations to connect with and conserve nature through STEM. Which is why we love Big Bang North West!” – Edward Perry, Knowsley Safari.
The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers 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.
The semi-finals for this competition take place annually at The Big Bang North West. Knowsley Safari are generously sponsoring the 2018 Protecting the Environment Award.
“We are strongly committed to the principles of conservation and sustainability. As both a zoological park and a visitor attraction we recognise that our own operations and actions of our guests have an impact on the environment. This award recognises students thought carefully about the environment within their project.”
