God and the Big Bang (GatBB) is a national education project which runs interactive workshop days with students from Year 5 – 13 to discover, discuss and debate the compatibility of science and faith. The workshops equip young people with the tools they need to form their own opinions and engage in rational and thought-provoking discussion about the part science plays in God’s world.
