How will you end the term with a big bang?
If you’re a STEAM-mad student, you’ll be itching to know how you can take part in such a day, and if you’re a teacher, you’ll be delighted – and relieved – to know that you can provide this learning experience for your students with minimal organisation on your part!
The day, hosted by presenter, podcaster and YouTuber Greg Foot, will run from 10am to 4pm. Sessions vary in length and many are followed by a live Q and A session with the host. Highlights of the day will include student-led conversations with Nobel Prize winner and director of the Crick Institute, Sir Paul Nurse, and Wellcome Trust director and SAGE (Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies) member, Sir Jeremy Farrar.
Big Bang Digital 2020 is being described as a ‘a celebration of the work of scientists and engineers in a pandemic.’ End of school year celebrations are always exciting, but, as teachers and students alike look ahead to a respite after a term that has been daunting in many ways, this academic year definitely needs to go out with a celebratory ‘big bang’!
