Balshaw's Students and Staff Visit The Big Bang Show

23 March 2017

On Saturday 18th March, fifteen of our students and three members of staff made the exciting trip to see Big Bang Show in Birmingham.

They travelled by train from Preston to Birmingham International and then made their way to the NEC where the Big Bang Show was taking place.

They had an amazing day in the world of science and two of our students have written a report about their day, which you can read below:

Helena Morris says …

"The Big Bang show was very thrilling. The area itself was huge and had plenty of things to have a go at. As well as interactive areas there were shows to watch which did experiments to educate people of all ages. Companies such as BAE Systems, Specsavers and the RAF were there with activities to get involved in and everyone was keen to do so. I enjoyed the ARM activity the best because we were able to code on Microsoft software to spell our name out in LED lights. I really enjoyed it and in my opinion think that it is well worth going next year".

Jess Heath says …

"I really enjoyed going to the Big Bang show as there were so many different things to do. I took part in two different virtual reality experiences which were so interesting and fun. Loads of different companies were there for example BAE Systems, Universities and the NHS. Each of these stations had various interactive activities, one I particularly enjoyed was provided by the Army and Naval forces. There was something for all ages. It was an amazing day and I would recommend going next year if the trip is on".

Thank you to Helena and Jess for telling us all about their day. It sounds like you had a great time.
