Big Bang North West: Big Bang @ Sensor City!

On the 16th of May 2018, the Big Bang North West facilitated another sensational Big Bang event hosted by Sensor City in conjunction with Shaping Futures.

Sensor City is a Liverpool-based technical innovation centre and University Enterprise Zone. They foster the creation, development, production and promotion of cutting edge sensor technologies for use in a wide range of sectors.

Schools attended the event from across the region to take part in interactive science, technology & engineering workshops and discover more about this inspirational learning hub.

Futurewise Innovation workshop: Santander FutureWise is designed to help students explore the world of innovation, spark ideas and debate what the future may be like for them. The workshop is designed to support the curriculum in the STEM subjects. It aims to leave students with an understanding of why we need to continually adapt and innovate to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

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.
