About Crawley STEMfest

Now in its eighth year, Crawley STEMfest provides students with a unique programme of interactive activities and events designed to inspire them to study and develop careers in STEM, plus great opportunities for employers and schools to connect.

The festival culminated with this years Big Bang Fair South East, an action-packed 2-day event in June attended annually by more than 10,000 9-19-year-olds. The event also celebrates students’ achievements through the regional heats of the prestigious Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Competition.

“Gatwick Airport is proud to be headline sponsor of Crawley STEMfest and the Big Bang Fair South East. Our objective is to inform the next generation about the wide range of applications of STEM skills at the airport and inspire them to choose STEM subjects – helping us to build a pipeline of talent for the future.” – Paula Aldridge, Community Engagement Manager
