Big Bang North West Celebration Evening: Thank you to our 2018 sponsors!

On the 20th of July, Team All About STEM hosted The Big Bang North West 2018 Celebration Evening to thank our amazing sponsors for their sensational support.

Each sponsor received their own award along with an exclusive All About STEM gift box.

There were drinks, nibbles, official photos & a sneak-peek at BBNW: The Movie too!

“I would like to personally thank all sponsors, exhibitors, the Metro Mayor, supporters, judges and volunteers; the day could not be possible without this amazing collaboration of people who all want to inspire the next generation of skills experts, together. The ripples from this event are already starting as schools are enquiring about other schemes they can get involved with and new businesses want to help us shine the spotlight on our fantastic region.” Michelle Dow, Managing Director, All About STEM.

You are all inspirational… let’s do it again in 2019?!
