The BIG BANG fair for young engineers and scientists




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 and careers information from STEM professionals. Next year's Fair will be held at The NEC, Birmingham 14-17 March 2018.

We aim to show young people (primarily aged 7-19) the exciting and rewarding opportunities out there for them with the right experience and qualifications, by bringing classroom learning to life.

Having grown from 6,500 visitors in its first year (2009) to over 70,000 in 2017, The Big Bang Fair is made possible thanks to the collaborative efforts of over 200 organisations.




At The Big Bang Competition Finals 2017:


1. George Rabin and Ed Thurlow won the title of GSK UK Young Scientists of the Year 2017 for their project ‘Do birds have a favourite colour?’ 


2. David Bernstein and Sankha Kahagala-Gamage won the title of UK Young Engineers of the Year 2017 for their developing the ‘Medivest’, an item of clothing that predicts an epileptic fit.
