Be curious and be active

Right here on campus we have the Sir Stanley Matthews Sports Centre, Sir Stanley Matthews, a local born boy who went on to achieve great things in the world of football. With the World Cup tournament having already begun, we are sure there is more than few footy fans on campus today, head on over to our Sir Stanley Matthews Sports Centre to discover what it has to offer –  there is even some sporting activities for you to take part in! Whilst we’re on the topic of football, did you know that the average distance covered by a premier league player in a single game is 6.7 miles or 13,400 steps, can you beat this?

Today is all about you and exploring all that STEAM has to offer (that is Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths subjects).  Enjoy the events and activities at Big Bang, ask questions, be curious and be active!

Remember each one of you can help us reach our 10,000,000-step target, but it must be a collective effort. Let’s collect as many steps as possible to see how far across the globe we can make it. We want you to thoroughly enjoy your time here with us today and not only is today about getting involved, it is to be more active and to enjoy the benefits related to exercise, such as improved mental and physical wellbeing and reducing stress levels! You can walk, jog or even run, maybe your feeling more adventurous than this, perhaps you would like to pretend to be an aeroplane and fly round our campus, we say go for it!
