A group of Year 7 and 8 pupils from Christ College’s Alway House spent the day at the Big Bang Fair at Celtic Manor on Monday.
The pupils, who make up the Project Science activity club, were visitors to the competition attending lectures on The Physics of an Electric Guitar and also on the Bloodhound SSC car.
The Big Bang is the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths for young people in the UK. The Big Bang is aimed at showing young people (primarily aged 7-19) just how many exciting and rewarding opportunities there are out there for them with the right experience and qualifications.
With over 30% of Christ College leavers going on to study hard sciences at university, a passion for science is encouraged and nurtured at a young age and with opportunities galore, it really is the place to be!
