Big Bang North West 2019: Competitive Coding & Brilliant Bots with The Royal Air Force!

It was once again an honour & a pleasure to welcome our returning Platinum Sponsor, The Royal Air Force to The Big Bang North West.

Our attendees packed their stand throughout the event to code & control their Sphero robots & complete their BBNW challenge. Could you make a rivet that can hold 80kgs? They did!

It was fantastic to see so many young engineers in the making…

“As Platinum Sponsors, The Royal Air Force Youth and STEM team are proud to support the Big Bang North West.  We want to inspire and influence future generations of innovators, aviators and engineers by building interest in STEM careers and increasing awareness of the Royal Air Force and potential STEM career pathways.”

“Catering for over 8000 visitors, we were delighted to provide hands-on activities for the unrelenting stream of enthusiastic schoolchildren of all ages.  The Big Bang North West just keeps getting better and better every year and we can’t wait to join you again in 2020!” – The Royal Air Force Youth and STEM team.

In addition to their Platinum support & awesome activities, The Royal Air Force also generously sponsored our Award for Team Work as part of the Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition.

In order to do this, we offer a range of different ways for people to get involved,  including:

• Hands on STEM activity days
• Week long residential visits at a number of RAF bases across the UK (which upon completion of you will receive a British Science Association Silver CREST Award and Industrial Cadet Certificate)
• A travelling road show
• A team of dedicated volunteer STEM Ambassadors that are available to deliver presentations
