Take your research to the Big Bang Science Fair
17 August 2017
Public Engagement - opportunity
The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair is calling for companies, activity providers, education institutions and show organisers to get involved in next year's Fair at the NEC in Birmingham,14-17 March 2018 (during British Science Week).
Celebrating its tenth year in 2018, The Big Bang Fair brings together the STEM community in a collective effort to inspire over 70,000 young people, their teachers and parents across four days each March.
There are many ways to get involved, from interactive stands, start-up pods and workshops to theatre shows and busking. We have options and packages to suit all forms of science and engineering communication, including funding for sole traders.
If you're interested in getting involved, please go to http://www.thebigbangfair.co.uk/get-involved/run-an-activity/ for more information and to apply.
Note: there is a cost to participate in the fair.
There are also regional Big Bang Fairs, visit their site for more information.
Got questions or want some advice? Get in contact.
If there's broad interest in attending as a joint venture, I'd be interested in seeing whether we can coordinate something - which might also help make it more economical by sharing the costs.
