“We are keen to reach young people and encourage them to get into engineering and construction. Having attended BBNW since 2017, and with other Jacobs representatives from offices across the UK attending other Big Bang Fairs, we want to return with a stand that truly targets young people in an engaging and fun way.
Our ambition is to make a difference by opening up the minds of students and giving them an insight into the real world of engineering, and what better way to do this than through people whose careers are across a multitude of engineering disciplines. Overall we hope to improve the diversity of people employed in engineering so that we can provide the best solutions for future projects through the minds of the next generations” – Karen Mottershead – STEM Coordinator for Jacobs Manchester, part of the Trans Pennine Hub.A

Feedback from STEM Ambassadors who attended BBNW:
“The attendees from differing backgrounds showed exceptional interest and had so many questions to ask us! It was lovely to speak to the younger generation of aspiring engineers, I felt they really connected well and were enthusiastic about the future of Engineering.”
“I really enjoyed meeting the attendees at last year’s event…we talked so much my throat got sore! It was surprising how knowledgeable some of the young people were and I found it exciting to share the opportunities in engineering which are open to them. Also I love how an appreciation of maths can span all ages.”
The Big Bang North West 2019 is going to be our BIGGEST & best event to date!
We’re sorry, BBNW is now FULLY BOOKED but we are still open for Big Bang UK competition entrants.
