More than 2000 people visited The Big Bang South West on Thursday 28 June 2012, to marvel at the fascinating science, technology, engineering and maths on display at The University of Exeter's Streatham campus.
Over 50 local and national organisations helped make the event a success, letting students know where studying science, engineering, technology and maths could take them as well as telling them about the latest developments or technology in their field.
South Devon College’s STEM fair stand stole the show, being the biggest, most varied and fun stand at the event. Pupils from as far as Bristol visited the stand and were able to:
- Extract DNA from strawberries
- Make lip balm
- Hold a hissing cockroach
- Stroke a snake
- Learn about renewable technologies and wind power
- Work out tricky maths problems
- Build a virtual bridge
- Play with computer robots
- See red wine transformed into milk, lemonade and milkshake
- Fight Edu-ek
...and so much more!
The event was a huge success and many pupils spent the majority of their visit at the college stand.
Huge thanks go out to all staff involved in making this event so interesting and inspirational to the visiting pupils. Looking forward to The Big Bang South West 2013!
