On Thursday, I visited the NEC to meet with pupils from the William Allitt School in the finals of the Big Bang Science & Engineering Fair competition.
It was great to see the girls from William Allitt and see their fascinating experiments.
Science is such an important part of the curriculum and it is wonderful that the William Allitt School has encouraged these incredibly talented girls to enter their experiments into the competition. I am very proud to be the MP of such skilled pupils.
The Government is working hard to encourage all pupils to explore career options in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, and this is especially important for the manufacturing companies of South Derbyshire.
