A science lesson with a big bang
FROM revolting experiments to fingerprint analysis and robot wars, dozens of activities brought science and engineering to life for hundreds of young visitors to Uxbridge College.
The workshops and demonstrations took place during The Big Bang London Fair, part of a UK-wide programme led by EngineeringUK to bring science and engineering to life for young people and encourage them to take science, technology, engineering and maths subjects.
Around 800 school children aged 11 to 16 got involved in a series of activities including scientific fun with food and cosmetics and creating music sampling.
Lorraine Collins, executive director of enterprise and development at Uxbridge College, said: “It was great to see so many young people having such a fantastic time learning more about science and engineering.”
