Big Bang 2017

Four members of our Education Group took part in the Big Bang Fair at the Ricoh Arena.  Big Bang is a UK-wide programme led by Engineering UK to bring science and engineering to life for young people. We set up display boards and a workspace with challenges involving circuit boards that kept a constant stream of 9 to 14 year olds entertained.  We provided information about career opportunities and Soroptimism. The event gave us the opportunity to continue the mission begun by Skirting Science of encouraging girls to study STEM subjects by showing them the exciting and rewarding careers in science and engineering that this can lead to.
