We all had a fantastic time at the Big Bang, a huge celebration of science and engineering. There were so many hands-on activities for us to try, and we are sure you can see how much we enjoyed them from our photos.
We learnt about catching viruses, making slime, cooling things with liquid nitrogen, and how to discover new subatomic particles using radioactivity. We tried to outrace Usain Bolt, wore virtual reality headsets and even climbed onto Tom Cruise's Mission Impossible helicopter. We tried giving a first aid dummy chest compressions and programmed tiny robots to follow lines.
All of these activities gave our children just a taste of the huge range of careers that studying science can open up for them, and how important science is for everyone's everyday life.
Thank you to everyone involved, especially our wonderful governor Laura Pilgrim.
