Review of Big Bang Fair South East 2018

The Big Bang Fair South East has grown. For the fifth year we headed to the South of England Showground, about 10 miles from Crawley, and more than 10,000 students and teachers joined us.

The Big Bang Fair South East 2018 included 260 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 giving students the opportunity to meet professionals from industry and academia, giving them an insight into careers in STEM.

Last time there was a waiting list, so we encourage schools to register online early. Registration for 2019 is open here. Due to the ongoing success of the event, the Big Bang Fair South East will again be held over two days – Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th June 2019.


Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition

The Big Bang Competition is a celebration of the achievements of young people in every STEM area. It showcases and rewards the best student projects and is open to all 11-18 year-olds who are in education.

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 a rewarding experience, talking to interested and knowledgeable people about their project work.
