The wonders of science are celebrated at Banbury Big Bang Fair

The wonders of science are celebrated at Banbury Big Bang Fair.

On Friday 24th November The Big Bang Banbury event celebrated of all things STEM as it welcomed schools from North Oxfordshire and as far away as Leamington and London. Space Studio Banbury were delighted to be the host over 2000 students for this exciting event.

The students joined ‘have a go’ workshops where they tried all kinds of activities from coding to taking blood from a fake arm to trying to power a spaceship with poo!

They enjoyed fantastic shows from TV Science specialist Dr. Emily Grossman and made their own vortices with Tom from Atomic Science.

They also had chance to meet scientists, engineers, palaeontologists, medics and astronomers who were exhibiting a wealth of scientific knowledge, broadening the aspirations in the world of science, engineering, technology and maths.

It was a fantastic event and we would like to day thank you and well done to Lucy Sterland and the team at The Space Studio for hosting a Near Me event

Watch their video to see what an amazing day we had!

“The Big Bang Fair is madness and mayhem, but that’s because it’s a big celebration of STEM. It’s the companies and supporters that are far sighted and know we need to inspire young children about the future career opportunities, that make these events happen.”
James Silcox – Director of the The Big Bang Midlands @ School Events.
