Sentinus Young Innovators, incorporating the Big Bang Northern Ireland, is one of the largest events of its kind in the UK, celebrating the achievements of young people in STEM. At its centre is an exhibition of innovative and exciting project work carried out by students from schools throughout Ireland, and a range of interactive challenges for primary school pupils.
The event aims to promote interest and engagement in the STEM subjects, for all age groups. Schools can register to attend free workshops and shows covering a wide range of subjects, including pyrotechnics, robotics, engineering superheroes, flight, engineering the future and the STEM Module. In addition there is a range of 30 interactive stands provided by local companies, universities and public sector bodies, demonstrating the use of science and engineering in the workplace.
This year, BBC’s The One Show reporter, Marty Jopson, will be entertaining young people with a science show looking at the science behind some of his recent attempts to break world records. Also, Scientific Sue’s Potions and Explosions show, Neil Monteiro’s Science of Magic show, interactive workshops and much more. IOP will be also be exhibiting at the event.
