On Tuesday 2nd July 2019 we were very fortunate to be able to take a large group of year 9 students to join in the Big Bang North West celebrations.
The Big Bang North West is a STEM celebration for school children and part of a programme led by Engineering UK. Big Bang events enable young people to discover the exciting and rewarding STEM based careers available in their local area via fun, interactive activities.
Along with all of the amazing stands, shows and exhibits, The Big Bang North West hosts the regional finals of The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition. Hopefully next year, we will have some finalists! Coverage of the event even made the national news!
Our students were really excited to take part and were a credit to the school.
We are already looking forward to next year...

"I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. There were many amazing stalls showing lots of different aspects of Science. My favourite part of the trip by far was going on the set of Coronation Street where I got to act out a scene. I also enjoyed doing lots of experiments, such as an experiment where we learnt how planes stayed in the air by using a hair dryer and a ping-pong ball".
" I really enjoyed practicing news reading and learning about how technology affects movies today".
