Big Bang Collection
Launched in 2009, The Big Bang: UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair is the UK’s biggest single science and engineering experience for young people. Throughout 2011 the National STEM Centre will be supporting a rich resource collection of materials from the many organisations that are working to make The Big Bang a celebration of science and engineering to inspire young people. The start of this collection is 'The Big Bang Lesson'.
The Big Bang Lesson
In 2010 Professor Brian Cox, physicist and presenter of television series' such as The ‘Wonders of the Solar System’, visited Springfield School in Drayton to host The Big Bang Lesson – a mind blowing workshop showing how fascinating science, technology, engineering and maths can be.
The background information PDF 'Biology Top Spots' below gives a guide to the Big Bang Show floor, including all of the different stalls offered by organisations supporting the show. The guide gives descriptions of all of the activities available at each stall, organising them by subject.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
