Big Bang North West: Big Bang @ Penketh High School

On the 22nd of March, Penketh High School hosted an exciting Big Bang @ School event & project competition!

Penketh learners have been researching ‘How the moon landings helped to shape the technology we use?’ and at the Big Bang @ Penketh they showcased their research & projects in an exhibition style event.

Students looked at developments in space exploration, what we know about the universe and NASA technologies. Projects were judged by a panel of experts including Physics Coach, Daisy Fox from the Institute of Physics.

Penketh invited pupils from Great Sankey Primary School to tour the project exhibition and learn about space and technology by communicating with older learners.

The school worked closely with attending primary students in the lead up to the event by delivering hands-on activities & providing fun, interesting resources. Amazing!

Congratulations to Penketh High School on a sensational event & a special thank you to STEM Coordinator, Mr Fone, who made it all happen.

The projects were phenomenal, so much so that the judges needed further deliberation and will reveal the winner this week! Hopefully we’ll be seeing all of the entrants at The Big Bang North West in the Big Bang UK Competition!

The Big Bang @ School

The Big Bang @ 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.
