How can you get involved?
“This year at the Big Bang North West we will be re-opening entries for next September’s Port Sunlight Bright Future Programme. This is a fantastic opportunity for teachers and students to learn more about what we do and how STEM can shape a career as well as challenge themselves to help solve some exciting real world business problems. Come and have a chat on the day for more information.
If you want to learn more about Unilever’s apprenticeship programme, we will have people on hand on the day to speak to or visit here.”
Unilever are also generously sponsoring our Communication Award at The Big Bang North West as part of the Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Competition.
“It’s not good enough to come up with the best idea that’s going to save the world if you can’t explain it to anyone else. Being a leading scientist, engineer or mathematician means being able to communicate your ideas to a team of people. We also need good science and engineering communicators to show the public what fantastic advances we’re making in STEM.”
