STEM Big Bang Fair Near Me Trip
On Thursday 29th July we took a coach load of year 9 and 10 students to the Roundhouse in Derby for the Big Bang Fair near me. A regional exhibition of all things Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths STEM in the East Midlands.
Students not only visited exhibits but watched stage shows and participated in hands on workshops such as the fantastic "Bridge To Schools" activity where the year 10 students built a huge steel suspension bridge and then walked over it!
There was a lot to think about in terms of future careers and the students conducted themselves with maturity and enthusiasm.
