The Big Bang Fair - posted 4th Jul

WVC took ninety Year 7 students to The Big Bang Fair Eastern at The University of Hertfordshire. The event is really hands on with students taking part in experiments and practical tasks. They can book onto workshops such as "The Human Guinea Pig Show" and "Secrets of the Cell", as well as attending a show in the Planetarium. Students could win prizes for taking part in events and this is always a great draw and I am pleased to say many of our students came home with water bottles, bags, rechargeable torches to name a few of the goodies! A great day was had by all with the students really engaging in this journey of discovery into science, technology, engineering and maths!
