The Big Bang Competition


For the second year running a Bushey Academy student, Paola, has made it to the finals of the national Big Bang Competition held at the NEC in Birmingham.
After winning a Gold Crest award for the research that Paola carried out at the aerospace engineering department of the University of Hertfordshire, Paola’s report was entered into the National School Science awards annual competition to find the best school research scientist in the UK and we have been informed that she has been shortlisted as a finalist.
The Finals will take place at the NEC in Birmingham on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 March 2020. At the Finals Paola will be judged by leading experts, take part in exciting STEM activities and possibly come away with an amazing prize!
Finalists compete for over £20,000 worth of amazing prizes, including top and runner-up prizes in the Junior, Intermediate and Senior categories for science and engineering, as well as the coveted titles of GSK UK Young Engineer of the Year and GSK UK Young Scientist.
Well done Paola!
