The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair is an annual celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) for 7 to 19 year olds made possible thanks to the collaborative efforts and support of over 100 organisations.
A unique, award-winning combination of exciting theatre shows, interactive exhibits and careers information, The Fair takes place at the NEC, Birmingham each March. It brings classroom learning to life for young people, allows them to meet hundreds of scientists and engineers, to get hands-on with science and engineering and shows them where their STEM studies might lead in the future.
