The Big Bang is a national programme which celebrates Science Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) careers. We deliver the programme across the South West region hosting several events throughout the year to inspire young people and showcase STEM employers from the region. In the last three years we have reached over 39,000 young people.

Our flagship event, The Big Bang Fair South West is the largest regional celebration of STEM careers. The 2019 event will host a range of exciting elements under one roof including; a show stage featuring engaging live science shows, a range of hands on activities from the most prominent STEM employers across the region, interactive workshops and the chance to find out about STEM career opportunities. The event is open to primary, secondary and home schooled children.

The event also celebrates and recognises student’s STEM projects. During the day we will host the South West regional heats of The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition, culminating in a glittering awards ceremony, with the winners progressing on to the national finals the following March at the NEC, Birmingham. A range of other STEM innovation awards are on offer too looking at things like communication, creativity and digital skills.

This event is free to attend.
