Coordinated by STEM Sussex

We’re currently looking for volunteers for the Big Bang Fair South East, on Wednesday-Thursday 26th-27th June 2019 at the South of England Showground. Part of a nationwide programme, the fair is an interactive event that raises the profile of young people’s achievements in STEM. Over 10,000 young people have already registered to attend a day of exciting and inspiring hands-on activities, workshops and shows provided by local employers, colleges and universities and other organisations.

Take a look at the video of last year’s fair for a flavour of what it’s all about.

We need a large number of volunteers to help the day run smoothly. You don’t need a STEM background – although it could help. Could you be a:

  • Guide – taking students and other guests through the event, ushering in theatres, helping at registration, etc
  • Workshop assistant – help in the National Space Centre’s mega-class (an interest in space or a background in physics might help)
  • Careers forum assistant – talk about your STEM career in a speed-networking group with a professional facilitator
  • Competition assistant – support students who have entered the Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Competition.

If you’d like to get involved, email for more information.

The University of Brighton through STEM Sussex will be hosting Crawley STEMfest in partnership with Crawley Borough Council and Crawley College.
