Big Bang Fair

Wednesday 13 March 2019

All Year 7 pupils are invited to join us on a voyage of discovery of virtual reality, medicine, marine biology, film and TV, space exploration, explosive chemistry, crime-solving, robots, computer coding, microscopic bugs, giant trucks and more at the annual Year 7 visit to the Big Bang Fair at the NEC, Birmingham on Wednesday 13 March 2019. 

The pupils get the opportunity to see how what they learn at schools is used by real people in real jobs. They will get the chance to hear from inspiring engineers and scientists from some of the UK’s biggest companies and find out about the opportunities available in science and engineering.

We will leave Princethorpe by coach at 9.00am and return to College by 3.30pm. Pupils are expected to wear full school uniform and to bring a packed lunch. There are refreshment stands and pupils are permitted to bring a small amount of money. The cost of the trip is £5.00 to cover the transportation costs and this will, should your child wish to come, be added to your bill (entry tickets are free).

If you have any queries or concerns regarding this trip, please email me at joannesmith@princethorpe.co.uk
