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 our What’s On section for full details.

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

We encourage students from across the region to attend the fair and take part in the exciting activities, to enter a project in the regional heats of the Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Competition, or even to create an activity of their own for their peers!

Check out our video from the 2018 event. If you’d like your school or college to be involved call us on 01273 644178 or email
