Review of Big Bang Fair South East 2016

The Big Bang Fair South East has grown! For the third year we headed to the South of England Showground about 10 miles out of Crawley, and more than 8,400 students and teachers joined us!

The Big Bang Fair South East was held on Wednesday 29th June 2016, and included 230 workshops, activities and shows provided by employers, professional bodies, educational organisations and top STEM deliverers from across the UK. Exhibition floors were filled with interactive stands gaving students the opportunity to meet professionals from industry and academia, giving them an insight into careers in STEM.

View our video from last year or check out some of the activities that will be there.

Last year there was a waiting list, so we encourage schools to register online early. Book your spaces here.

Whether you want to officially enter the competition, or just want to bring some work to showcase what you’ve been doing, we’d really encourage it. Students find it such a rewarding experience, talking to interested and knowledgable people about their project work.
