9 July 2020
It’s just under a week till the #BigBangDigital website switches on its live stream and we broadcast to the classrooms, front rooms and kitchens across the land.
Whether they’re watching at school or at home, we think all young people (11+) can find something interesting and inspiring in the line-up. It’s going to be an uplifting day of short, inspiring sessions looking at all aspects of STEM in a pandemic.
The day starts with a panel of NHS frontline staff and ends with Gastronaut Stefan Gates leading an explosive, rainbow-inspired tribute to key workers with experiments to try at home.
In between we have a packed programme bursting with inspiring stories, featuring incredible people (including a Nobel Prize winner) and celebrating the amazing work of scientists and engineers in the pandemic.
Young people can ask questions in live Q&A sessions, add their voice to online polls and complete activities throughout the day.
Check out the programme
