The Big Bang! A Student's View

On Thursday 16th March, year groups 5 to 8 went on an inspiring school trip to The Big Bang in Birmingham. The show focuses on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and is designed to inspire more children to get involved in these subjects. The exhibits looked like they had taken many weeks to plan and to make!

Personally, I really thought the High Speed Two (Hs2) and Rolls Royce exhibits were very eye-opening and encouraging. The Hs2 demonstrated how all the STEM subjects can apply, and this provides lots of different career choices that are available to you. The Rolls Royce exhibit was directed towards engineering, it taught us how the engine works and how they test its reliability.

The other thing that the Big Bang had to offer was an extremely clever performance called  'Do try this at home'. It taught us, in a funny and cool way, about maths, physics, and chemistry, as well as some scientific theories.

Another brilliant thing about our trip was that lots of exhibitors had quizzes that you could take to determine what kind of career you might be suited to in the future, depending on the type of personality you have and the kind of activities you enjoy the most.

Overall this trip was very, very inspirational, and it gave me ideas for what I want to do when I'm older. I highly recommend this to anybody who is thinking of attending next year, it's great fun and a good experience.
