Big news for The Big Bang North West 2016!

Building on the success of the last two years of The Big Bang North West, organisers MerseySTEM have announced it will return for 2016 with an even bigger bang on Liverpool’s iconic waterfront.

Organisers and Educate Awards sponsor MerseySTEM, is well known in the region for doing incredible things to promote science, technology, engineering and maths in schools, businesses, the community and beyond.

The Big Bang North West 2016 promises to be its biggest event to date. Held at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool on 5 July, the brand new venue can accommodate 6000 children and is open to all North West schools, Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4 and beyond.

The Big Bang North West is a STEM celebration which enables young people to discover the exciting and rewarding STEM based careers available in the local area via fun ‘quick hitting’ hands-on action.

This year’s careers fair will be bigger than ever where you can meet inspiring engineers and scientists from across the region and be able to check out the entries for The National Science & Engineering Competition.

The full list of exhibitors will be revealed shortly, but last year highlights included coding at a huge CoderDojo, riding on a Viking longboat, a zoobus, racing Usain Bolt through an inflatable accelerator tunnel, live animals, 3D printing and robot wars!

Managing director Michelle Dow, who will also take a seat on the Educate Awards judging panel this year, is looking forward to another jam-packed event, saying: “We are so excited about The Big Bang North West 2016! With a new date and a sensational new venue at the Exhibition Centre Liverpool, it’s going to be the biggest and best yet!

“We have the capacity for 6000 schoolchildren and a gigantic floor space for all manner of interactive STEM shows, hands-on workshops, competition work, fun activities and careers stalls – we can’t wait to reveal them all.”

“It’s going to be an unbelievable day, a celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths. Remember, remember, the 5th of July!”
