 BSI at the Big Bang Fair 2015

BSI volunteers at the Big Bang Fair 2015
The BSI had an action-packed time at the 2015 Big Bang Fair, the UK's largest celebration of science and technology for young people.  The fair took place over four days at the NEC in Birmingham and saw a whopping 80,000 students come along to discover more about the exciting world of science and technology and what opportunities it offers them.  
As part of the BSI's aim to enhance public understanding of immunology, we ran a stand called "Allergy Busters", looking at the science behind allergies.  We had a number of activities including our giant nose, which students could crawl through - a big draw for the stand!  We also had our allergy thought board, where visitors could post up how allergies made them feel.  The pollen grains under the microscope proved very popular and really helped to focus the students' minds on the causes of allergies.  Finally we finished off examining the link between allergies and asthma and gave visitors the opportunity to do a peak flow test to measure how much air they could blow out of their lungs. 
Thank you to all our wonderful BSI members who helped us to run the stand - we couldn't have done it without you. To see more photos from the event, visit the BSI's Flickr channel.  A full write-up will appear in the next issue of Immunology News.
