After the success of our outreach at the Cheltenham Science Festival, we organised another two sessions at the Big Bang Fairs in Coventry and Exeter. Big Bang West Midlands, in Coventry, was visited by over 4000 people proving a great opportunity for us to get involved with many space enthusiasts. Similarly, Big Bang South West, in Exeter, was attended by over 2000 students. In both the fairs, we got to inspire people old and young to learn more about space.
A very special thanks to all the fantastic volunteers in the UKSEDS Outreach Team, and to the Big Bang Fair Event team, the Gravitational Waves team from the University of Birmingham and SpaceGambit UK for their activities and support throughout the fairs.
Get in touch if you’re interested in joining the team. We have more outreach planned in the next few months, so watch this space!
