Year 10 Big Bang Trip, NEC Birmingham

A group of Year 10 pupils, who have shown an interest in an engineering career, attended the Big Bang Fair Show at the NEC, Birmingham. This is a national event drawing schools from across the country. It was an excellent opportunity for the pupils to meet and talk to both large and small national providers and employers including, BAE, Rolls Royce, BMW, The Armed Services, the NHS, JCB and others from the more than 200 stands. This was an extremely interactive day with pupils able to use the equipment and develop an awareness for the different engineering and scientific roles available. Pupils will certainly have benefitted from these individual meetings and the seminars provided. A long but very enjoyable day!
