The Big Bang Fair North Wales

EESW is pleased to be bringing one of the largest events in STEM to North Wales again this year at Venue Cymru, Llandudno on Wednesday 25th March 2015.

IMG_0030There will be over twenty-five EESW teams from across North Wales attending to display the work they have completed during the EESW Sixth Form Project in 2014–2015.  Teams of up to eight students are linked with a local company to work on an engineering project over a six month period.  These teams are then invited to the Big Bang North Wales to display their work and undergo an assessment.  There is an opportunity for the teams to win various awards, sponsored by donating organisations and teams will automatically be entered in the National Science and Engineering Competition 2015.  Following the assessment process, some of these teams will be nominated to attend the Big Bang National Fair in 2016.

Dr Mark Lewney – Rock Guitar in 11 Dimensions
What causes the revolutionary, history-changing sound of rock guitar, and how does it help us understand the nature of the entire universe? Dr. Lewney explains the physics of rock using riffs from Vivaldi to Queen and the theme from Bullseye, tells you the secret of the Stradivarius, and shows how string vibrations might lie at the heart of the answers to the Big Questions about the Big Bang and the dimensions of the universe.
