Day five of the Big Bang Fair, our busiest day yet and Mario left us to return back to Edinburgh. The previous evening we all attended the supporter’s dinner, where the Young Scientist and Young Engineer of the year were announced. It was followed by a three course sit down dinner with people from industry, the exhibitors and other guests.

We had over 300 dinosaurs created today, 220 people used our “design a supercomputer” app and over 150 people were involved in the postal sorting demo. More than any other day, many of the visitors were very engaged with the demos and we constantly had a stream of people waiting for their turn. Once again, the frisbies were a hugely popular freebie draw for people.

Tomorrow is our last, and we expect busiest, day. For the past 3 days there have mainly been people attending via school trips, whereas tomorrow it will be families who come along.
