Big Bang North West 2019: AstraZeneca Inspire with Incredible Innovations!
We were overjoyed to have AstraZeneca (Liverpool) return as our Diamond Sponsor for The Big Bang North West 2019. This is the sixth year they have sponsored our event and they celebrated in style with their BIGGEST exhibit to date. Inspirational!
As Diamond Sponsor, AstraZeneca offered an amazing selection of activities including experiments, thermography and ultrasonics and attendees loved finding out how infrared was used in engineering.
There were fun games to enjoy too, did you Fish for Viruses or Beat the Raptor?
Visitors packed the AstraZeneca stand to explore all of the health and medical exhibits, learning more about lifesaving medicines and vaccines.
They also had the chance to ‘suit up’ and meet real scientists, technicians and engineers!
In addition to their event support, AstraZeneca sponsored our Young Engineer of the Year Award as part of The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition.
The NW Young Engineer of the Year Award recognises excellence in engineering.

“For the 6th consecutive year the 35 strong AstraZeneca STEM Team of Scientists, Engineers and Technical Subject Matter Experts from across the North West, invested in the region’s future, providing a practical insight to our industry and the roles we all play working to ultimately save people’s lives… the day was even better and bigger than last years – Congratulation to all involved!!”
