Big Bang Fair ’17 heads up

The Big Bang Fair is calling for companies, activity providers, education institutions and show organisers to play their part in next year’s Fair, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham from 15-18 March 2017.

Celebrating its ninth year in 2017, The Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Fair brings together the STEM community in a collective effort to inspire over 70,000 young people, their teachers and parents across four days each March.

Around 200 organisations from across industry, education and the third sector work together as part of the Big Bang Fair each year to bring alive science, technology, engineering and maths and show young people (aged 7-19) the exciting and rewarding opportunities out there for those with the right experience and qualifications.

There are many ways to get involved with The Big Bang Fair, from interactive stands and workshops to theatre shows and busking. We have options and packages to suit all forms of science and engineering communication, including funding for sole traders.

Headline shows
The Big Bang Fair is looking for headline shows to feature on its 1,500 seat main stage for 2017 and/or 2018. The show must contain interactive elements and engage and inspire young people in science, technology, engineering or maths, ideally with links to the curriculum.
