That this House congratulates EngineeringUK for the successful Big Bang Fair on science and engineering held at the NEC arena in Birmingham from 15 to 17 March 2012 as the flagship event from National Science and Engineering Week; celebrates the variety of innovative projects carried out by schools across the country and presented at the fair, including a mechanism to save water when flushing the cistern and the creation of a supported lift to be used in the testing of gearboxes; applauds the Wellcome Trust's Olympic-inspired In The Zone exhibition which empowered individuals to understand how their bodies work while doing exercise; further congratulates Kirtana Vallabhaneni, who was named Young Scientist of the Year, and Wasim Miah and Jessica Jones, who were named Young Engineers of the Year; anticipates that young people will be inspired by their achievements and the events taking place as part of the fair; and calls on the Government to ensure that science and engineering opportunities and support will be widely accessible for young people.
