|STEM Club Big Bang Visit|
STEM Club had another successful visit to Big Bang Fair 2012 at Birmingham. On March 16th, about 45 St Josephs' boys and a few teachers had an opportunity to witness the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths for young people in the UK. This Fair is aimed at showing young people just how many exciting and rewarding opportunities there are out there for them with the right experience and qualifications.
One of our regular STEM Club member from 8.1 says:
"The big bang fair in Birmingham was extremely exciting. There were lots of workshops that caught our eyes. My favourite workshop was to do with Formula 1 motors, I found out about the engineering involved in making a Formula 1 motor. The workshop also included a simulation in which you could control a Formula 1 car and race against other people. We also had a presentation in which we were taught how the world as we view it is created in our minds, and how science plays a role in magic. The other workshops include talks about the body, the journey our food takes and how science plays a vital role in putting it on our plates. The big bang fair is a mind-blowing experience which changes the way you view things in life and I can't wait for the next fair to arrive."
‘STEM club visit to Big Bang fair in Birmingham was an excellent opportunity for all STEM club members to discuss different career options related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. They have also attended different workshops including, maths and computing workshop where mathematical logics behind magic were explained. Students also went to the stalls of different organizations including, Nestle, EDF, EON and IOP (Institute of Physics) and had useful discussions about different career options within their organizations. This is one of the biggest events attended by thousands of pupils throughout the country and was very enjoyable experience for our students.'
