Why attend The Big Bang Fair 2020?

 

The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair is the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) for young people in the UK. It is an award-winning combination of exciting theatre shows, interactive workshops and exhibits and careers information from STEM professionals.

We want everyone who comes to The Big Bang Fair to understand how important scientists and engineers really are… they literally shape the world around us! The number of exciting career possibilities that exist within science, technology, engineering and maths are endless and the best news is, there’s a route for everyone. Our Careers Cabin is there to help visitors discover their own route into a STEM career with activities and advice being aligned to the Gatsby Benchmarks for Good Careers Guidance.

The Fair gives young people the chance to hear from inspiring engineers and scientists from some of the UK’s biggest companies and find out about the opportunities available in STEM. Visitors can join us to discover virtual reality, medicine, marine biology, film and TV, space exploration, explosive chemistry, crime-solving, robots, computer coding, microscopic bugs, giant trucks and more.

The Big Bang Fair engages and inspires young people through interactive and engaging activities, workshops and shows.

See a list of all confirmed activities, shows and workshops for the 2020 Fair!

There will be a large exhibition floor designed to encourage a journey of discovery through the event.

Many of the stands will feature working scientists and engineers, all available to answer any questions that young people have about jobs and careers. Find out what happens in the Careers Cabin.

There will also be timed theatre shows and workshops. These are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
