A couple of weeks ago the Big Bang South West – celebrating science, technology, engineering and maths – took place again at the University of Exeter – and SunGift’s managing director joined other experts at the top of their fields to act as official assessors of more than 150 student projects.
The interactive exhibition included a record-breaking science, physics and chemistry ‘mega class’ for 1,050 young led by National Space Academy director Anu Ojha.
Jenny Rudge, chief executive of Careers South West, said: “Each year at the Big Bang South West we are amazed at the scale and ambition of the student projects and overwhelmed by the level of interest and enthusiasm. Breaking the UK record for a Mega Class is a superb achievement and just goes to show the level of interest in the subjects that shape our world.”
Gabriel Wondrausch said: “SunGift became involved in the Big Bang Exeter a few years ago, because we feel it’s important to continually drive forward innovation and invest in our country’s future innovators. Just as SunGift is constantly looking for and exploring new ideas to give our customers the best possible solutions, we believe this is only possible if we excite young minds, show them new ways to explore science and keep them interested. I was honoured to be one of the event’s assessors and look forward to seeing how the winners get on in the national finals.”
SunGift also took along our ‘solar van’ to the exhibition, which is becoming a well-known feature of many events throughout Devon and the South West this summer
