Megawatt at The Big Bang Fair

Megawatt exhibited at The Big Bang Fair in June 2022 with great success.

As the UK’s largest celebration of STEM, thousands of students aged 11-14 attended to get hands on with science. We were thrilled to see so many students and teachers enjoy playing Megawatt and discover energy through play. They couldn’t wait to see Megawatt in their classrooms!
