Regional Big Bang in the East Midlands

by Guest Blogger: CathyB 29. August 2010 20:17

In July I attended the East Midlands Regional Big Bang at Loughborough University. This was one of a series of regional Big Bangs that feed into the national Big Bang in March next year. Young people from primary, secondary and post-16 attended. Students entered fantastic projects in the CREST and Young Engineers for Britain competitions, schools showcased their STEM Club activities and primary pupils competed in the regional K’Nex Challenge. Outside the judging the event featured a whole host of fun and engaging hands-on activities and workshops.  These included a chance to measure the speed of your kick using high tech cameras and a pit stop tyre change challenge with the University’s Formula Student team.  Congratulations to all the prize winners and to the following schools which will be representing the East Midlands at the National Big Bang in 2011: Redmoor High SchoolKing Edward VII School Stamford SchoolWelland Park Community CollegeOakham SchoolEastwood Comprehensive School For more information see: Loughborough University’s press release, LEBC’s press release and the Big Bang.
