Making a mess in the name of science
Yelong Wei and Alex Alexandrova are back to their LA³NET projects after their big contribution to the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths for young people in the UK. The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair took place from Wednesday 11th to Saturday 14th March at The NEC in Birmingham. The event aims to inspire the future scientists and engineers through exciting hands on activities and interactive exhibits. Demonstrations of exciting experiments included a levitating train, hair-raising experiments and the very messy magic flying paper- it was like Argentina 1978 all over again. A table-top magnetic accelerator with the potential to give a painful shock was also constructed to help explain the wonderful and magical world of physics.
Alex said, ‘It was a real pleasure to speak about science with children and young future scientists!’
