Our popular annual Big Bang fair brings industry and academics together with a focus on promoting STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) to around 1000 students aged 13 - 15 across the region.

This year’s event will be held on Tuesday 26 March 2019 and promises to promises to explore into new areas, with a theme based on the environment and conservation.

Get involved

Making STEM fun and engaging for students who are studying at GCSE level and on the cusp of choosing their career paths is vital - and your involvement will show them how varied and interesting careers in science, technology, engineering and maths can be.

We’re looking to inspire and amaze students with our interactive workshops run by employers and academics who are experts in their fields. We’ll have activities that challenge their thoughts about the subjects and provide an insight into what work is done in these sectors…

There's also the very popular employers' marketplace in the Ivor Crewe lobby - where you can have a stand for your company, and talk to students individually as they explore the fair.

The fair is a brilliant opportunity to get onto campus, see how you can work with us, and most importantly inspire and support young people.
