Big Bang North West 2019: The Movie!
On the 2nd of July, The Big Bang North West hit The Exhibition Centre Liverpool and thousands of young people from across the region enjoyed exciting exhibits, sensational shows and ingenious innovation while celebrating STEM.
Visitors hopped in a helicopter from a blockbuster movie, witnessed phenomenal fire demonstrations, danced with robots, fished for viruses, rode a mechanical horse, immersed themselves in virtual reality and enjoyed explosive science, gadgets, slime, creatures, coding and more!
Take a look and relive a truly amazing day…
The Big Bang North West is brought to you by All About STEM and sponsored by Unilever as part of a programme led by EngineeringUK. Big Bang events bring Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths to life! They enable young people to discover the exhilarating and rewarding STEM based careers available in their local area via fun, hands-on activities. Adding to the excitement, the event hosts the regional heat of The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition.
This year’s event was sponsored and supported by leaders in the field including Unilever, AstraZeneca, Air Products, Shaping Futures, ScottishPower, The Royal Air Force, LEGO Education and more. So many awesome organisations dedicated to supporting STEM in schools.
Michelle Dow, Managing Director of All About STEM said, “Big Bang North West is all about inspiring young people, giving them that spark of inspiration to find out what career they want to do when they grow up. Students can see real people here, real brands, real products and learn from real role models.
From a company perspective, it’s important to realise that we’ve got all of this young talent untapped. As companies, we need to impress our young people and say ‘pick me as a career destination’.
We can provide the links they need to join the dots between what they do in school, to what career they can do in our fantastic city, the north west and beyond!”
Glyn Roberts, Director R&D at Unilever said, “It’s been amazing. I’ve seen this event grow and grow over the last four years & I’m incredibly proud of Michelle, Ali & All About STEM working to make this a flagship event for STEM in the north west of England.”
For Unilever it’s been another opportunity for us to showcase what we do.
I’m incredibly proud of the team that I’ve got here, the energy, the passion, the creativity & inspiration. It’s been an absolute joy to watch the smiles on children’s faces as they engage with our products & get to see the real science underpinning them.
Thoroughly enjoyed it, I can’t wait for next year. Highlight of my year!”
