Cool-Science

UK: Refrigeration and air conditioning is to presented to engineers of the future at the Big Bang Science Fair in March next year.

Carel-HumiSonicWhile there is an undoubted need to attract and inspire future generations of engineers, designers and researchers, refrigeration and air conditioning has a low profile and this needs to change.

To spread the message that the refrigeration and air conditioning industry is a good career choice the Institute of Refrigeration is supporting Cool Science at The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair but needs the financial assistance of the industry.

The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair runs from March 11-14 at the NEC. It is designed to show how many exciting and rewarding opportunities there are out there for young people with the right experience and qualifications.

Last year the event attracted over 75,000 young people aged 7-19 who were given access to a wide range of exciting possibilities that exist for young people with science, technology, engineering and maths backgrounds.

The “Cool Science” concept and activity will be a key part of the event in 2015. The IoR is not only raising awareness of this initiative but is also financially supporting the project. However, it requires more organisations to get behind this initiative and offer both financial and practical support.
