A group of students from Wollaston school visited the Big Bang Roadshow at Northampton Saints last Wednesday in the lead up to our Annual Science week events. The students had the opportunity to meet with a range of businesses and organisations that are linked to Northamptonshire and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics careers).

It was an excellent opportunity for students see, and sample, the wide range of careers that studying science and engineering can lead to.

Careers on show were diverse in nature and included areas such as shoe design and manufacture to design and manufacture of high precision engine components for improving performance. Other careers included chemistry, computing, environmental science and aeronautics.

The day ended with an ‘atomic science’ chemical roadshow where the students had the opportunity to see some chemical demonstrations close up.
