Celebrating 40 years of creating unforgettable memories...
Tell us or show us your #NECMemories
The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair is the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) for young people in the UK.
The Big Bang Fair is an award-winning combination of exciting theatre shows, interactive workshops and exhibits, as well excellent careers information. We aim to show young people (primarily aged 7-19) the exciting and rewarding opportunities out there for those with the right experience and qualifications, by bringing classroom learning to life.
Visitors will have the chance to talk to scientists and engineers about the fascinating jobs they have, and take part in activities such as building a gravity racer, walking through a wind tunnel, exploring how sound can enhance flavour and much, much more!
The Fair also hosts national competitions, inviting young people from across the UK to compete, amongst other things, for the title of UK Young Scientist and UK Young Engineer of the Year.
