Big Bang Event – Year 5

On Thursday 23rd June, Year 5 enjoyed a fun and interactive day at the the Big Bang Yorkshire and Humber which was held at Doncaster Racecourse.
Pupils enjoyed meeting animals, launching rockets, racing cars, racing next to artificial professional athletes, eating dried crickets (!!), investigating their fingerprints and meeting a Dalek!!!
Year 5 were also fortunate to take part in an interactive ‘Best of Science’ show which included creating slime, optical illusions,100mph ping pong balls, singing materials and air vacuums!
All of that and not to mention the dancing robots….Wow!
It was a an inspirational trip and thank you to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and HETA (Humberside Engineering Training Association) for organising such a motivational and creative science day.
Here are a few photos of the day!
