Coordinated by STEM Sussex


Throughout May and June schools in Crawley can take part in a variety of exciting activities as part of Crawley STEMfest. See the What’s On section for full details.

The Big Bang Fair South East is open to all 9-19 year-olds across the region and their teachers. Last year’s event included over 260 hands-on activities, workshops and shows provided by top deliverers from all over the UK. An exhibition floor was filled with interactive stands where students could meet professionals from industry and academia and get an insight into potential careers in STEM disciplines.

The event is open to all schools in the region, and students can be involved in three ways:

  • Attending the fair and take part in the exciting activities
  • Entering a project in the regional heats of the Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Competition
  • Creating an activity for their peers.
