Year 6 at the Big Bang Event

23 Jun

Year 6 had an absolutely great time at The Big Bang Fair at the NEC. This event is the biggest celebration of STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) for young people in the UK. It was a fantastic opportunity to see these subjects in action, opening an understanding of how large and important a part of our society this subject is.  The industrial sectors were out in all force: from HS2 to Specsavers, to Nissan's all Electric Car and Boston Dynamics' Spot Robot Dog - which was something quite awe-inspiring to showcase how science works in real life.  Pupils got a lot from this learning experience and hopefully will give them a boost into their secondary school learning.
