Coordinated by STEM Sussex


The Crawley STEMfest organisers would like to thank all the sponsors of Crawley STEMfest and the Big Bang Fair South East, particularly our headline sponsor Gatwick Airport Ltd.

Many organisations support our events through sponsorship, in-kind partnership or educational STEM-related activities. Funding partners play a vital role, enabling us to engage with thousands of young people throughout the South East through our schools outreach programme, STEM Clubs and events like Crawley STEMfest.

Our biggest annual event takes place at the South of England Showground on 26th-27th June 2019.  The Big Bang Fair South East is a careers fair with a difference, linking employers with young people to inspire them to study STEM subjects and consider STEM-related careers.

It provides a unique opportunity for organisations from across the region to network with like-minded individuals and connect with over 10,000 people – students and teachers, professional bodies, higher education institutions and professional STEM communicators. The event grows year-on-year and its continuing success depends on the support of businesses, professional bodies and educational establishments.

Your involvement can make a major contribution to the fair’s continuing success. Your participation will make the event bigger, better and even more inspirational for the scientists and engineers of the future. It is an exciting and challenging festival that shows young people how science can be both fun and relevant and nurtures their capacity to think “outside the box” and become truly innovative.
