The Big Bang Fair South West will take place on Tuesday 25 June 2019 at Westpoint Arena. Welcoming over 6,000 young people, the fair will enable primary school, secondary school and home educated children to learn more about STEM careers through-out the day. The day-long event has a packed schedule, which will include live science shows, interactive hands-on exhibits and activities showcasing the best science and tech businesses from across the region.
Working in partnership with a range of key stakeholders across the public and private sectors, event organiser, Charlie Molyneux of CSW said: “I am thrilled to bring this prestigious regional celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths (STEM) to a new venue for 2019. This large and flexible space will enhance the experience gained by young people and will increase the range of hands-on STEM related activities.”
Alongside the shows and exhibits the event will also host the South West regional heat of the national Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers competition, culminating in a glittering awards ceremony. The winners will represent the region at the National finals in March 2020 at the NEC Birmingham.
The Big Bang Fair South West provides a platform for STEM employers to engage with the next generation of engineers and scientists. For businesses that are interested in getting involved, please contact [email protected] 01392 215501
