On 4 July, schoolchildren from across the North West of England were invited to the Exhibition Centre in Liverpool, UK, to attend the Big Bang North West, a STEM event led by EngineeringUK that enables young people to discover the exciting and rewarding careers available in their area. Complete with stands, shows and exhibits, the event enabled pupils to leave the classroom environment and experience the STEM disciplines through fun and interactive activities.
This year, RSK director Sue Sljivic attended the event to provide information on RSK’s work and the variety of career opportunities that pupils could be inspired to pursue. She was supported on the day by principal environmental geologist Frances Clayton and associate director Daniel Clare.
Big Bang North West, just one of the STEM events being held throughout the year, was a STEM-sational success. RSK’s input received great feedback from the pupils and organisers alike. We hope that RSK will continue to educate young people on the possibilities of science and engineering, and that, with more STEM Ambassadors, we can help pupils’ interest in the STEM disciplines to go off with a bang!
