Curtis and James have finished setting up BioBox at Big Bang too. Curtis has already had lots of interest in his innovative real time rainforest in a box. It is going to be a busy couple of days.
Well done Curtis, James and Terry for getting BioBox Mark II sorted in time for the competition.
Months of hard work have all been worth it. Heather, Matt, Ike, Zoe and Devin have set up their display at the finals of the National Science and Engineering competition at The Big Bang Science Fair.
Two days of excitement, judging and 40,000 visitors starts at the NEC tomorrow morning at 9.30am. We will do our best to keep you posted.
The Big Bang team were able to practise their presentation at the open day to the visitors and to work out any potential questions the judges may ask. The team could also put together a small display using orchids of Sikkim including ‘Coelogyne cristata’ and ‘Dendrobium nobile’. The team will be travelling to Birmingham NEC on Wednesday and returning on Friday after doing the real presentation, let’s wish them luck!
Thursday’s open evening was a real success and we all had a superb time! We had our sales table in the classroom (having to restock AGAIN after brilliant sales at previous events), tours around the greenhouse by all the students, especially the younger ones who did a fab job, displayed photographs of British Native orchids from Richard Laurence As well as displayed photographs of orchids from Bosnia and Herzegovina by Dino Zelenika. We’d like to thank all the adult helpers from the orchid adult group for helping to look after us all and visitors with tea, coffee, squash and yummy cakes!
