CAL International exhibited at All About Stem’s Big Bang Fair NW 2019. The event, is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) celebration for school pupils and part of a programme led by EngineeringUK. Big Bang events enable young people to discover the exciting and rewarding STEM based careers available in their local area via fun, interactive activities!
The Fair took place at Exhibition Centre in Liverpool on the 2nd of July 2019. It saw a number of sponsors and exhibitors hosting fantastic interactive activities and competitions to inspire and engage the next generation of STEM professionals. The day consisted of two sessions, each for two and a half hours, and saw around 8,000 school pupils and professionals in attendance. The arena floor was packed with fire shows, dry ice, gadgets, robots, coding, forensics, creatures, slime, medical magic and more!
CAL held an exciting go kart pit-stop challenge, where teams of two pupils used spanners to remove the wheels from the go kart, swap them over with their partner and then refit them as quickly as possible. The challenge was spilt into two age categories, year 7-9 and year 10-11. The team in each category with the quickest time at the end of the day won a 3D printer for their school! The CAL stand was packed throughout the day with queues of children wanting to take part and get their time on the leaderboard!
At the end of the day the winners from the year 7-9 category were Academy at Worden and the winners from the year 10-11 category were Wirral Grammar School for Boys. Congratulations to the winners and thank you to all of the schools that took part on the day!
Lee Fogg, Technical Director of CAL International, and the rest of the CAL team had a fantastic day at the exhibition and love continually working alongside All About Stem to support them in bringing exciting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics activities to schools across the region in order to inspire the next generation of STEM specialists.
