Next month, a group of EPCC staff members will be travelling to Birmingham to take part in The Big Bang Fair 2016, a national science festival for school children. The event takes place over four days and will reportedly attract in excess of 70,000 visitors, so this is a great opportunity to showcase ARCHER, EPCC and all of the work we do here.
