The BIGGEST celebration of STEM in Education is back for 2017

You are invited to the BIGGEST Celebration of STEM in Education event –Big Bang@ Inspirations 2017.

What is Big Bang@ Inspirations 2017?

Big Bang@Inspirations is a great FREE annual event dedicated to getting young people aged 7-19 excited about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) as well as innovation and enterprise. We are inviting you to join us at this major event.

Who is invited? Schools and employers are invited to take part.

What can we expect? – There’s something for everyone! We have science and engineering hands-on activities all delivered by leading businesses, universities and others.  This year we are engaging with more local employers who will talk about STEM careers as well as showing young people how STEM is relevant in the workplace.

Last year we teamed up with local employers and organisations including Drax Power, Doosan, Dale Power Solutions, FERA, Nestlé, RAF, Army, Navy, York Potash Project, Derwent Training, The York Merchant Adventurers, and the Rotary Club of York Vikings as well as our education partners Askham Bryan College, York St John University, York College and many more…. This year we aim to make the event BIGGER and BETTER!

At the heart of this event is a real celebration of achievement – we put young people at the heart of this event, displaying their ideas, whether STEM or Enterprise projects and prototypes created within education or outside to our expert judges recruited from business.  Last year over 100 projects were showcased and over 50 awards were presented to students at the event by our judges all sponsored by businesses and partner organisations.  Schools are invited to enter their student’s project work – Why not have a look at some of last year’s winners

The event will also house STEM and Enterprise Challenges that have run in school over this academic year including the ever popular Solar Boat Challenge, if your school would like to enter this please complete the attached reply slip and return to us.  FREE Kits are available early next year. (Subject to availability)
