Get involved

Crawley STEMfest is an opportunity not only for students to experience some of the latest innovations and to learn about careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) but for their teachers to forge links with the STEM community.

It is an exciting and challenging festival, making STEM subjects fun and relevant. It nurtures their capacity for “thinking outside the box” and becoming truly innovative. See the What’s On page for details of some of the events.


If you’d like your school or college to be involved with Crawley STEMfest or the Big Bang Fair South East, or you’d simply like more information, call STEM Sussex on 01273 641874 or email
