The Big Bang Fair North East – Primary Day

27th June 2016 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm

NYBEP in partnership with Northumbria University, Thinks Physics, The Reece Foundation and Accenture invite your school to attend The Big Bang Fair North East – Primary Day.

What is the Big Bang Fair North East? – The Big Bang North East Programme is a great FREE programme of events designed to get young people aged 11-19 excited about science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) in the real world. It is part of a major UK-wide programme led by EngineeringUK to reveal the opportunities STEM can offer young people.

What can we expect? – There’s something for everyone! We have science and engineering hands-on workshops, shows and drop in activity sessions all delivered by leading businesses, universities and others.  This year we are engaging with more local employers who will talk about STEM careers as well as showing young people how STEM is relevant in the workplace.

Hot off the press: We are pleased to announce the first confirmed show – Professor Brainstorm’s Magical Science Show for Primary Audiences – How does he do that? It looks like magic, but everything is carefully explained using science. The show is designed to stimulate, entertain and educate – and to convey the message that ‘Science is Fun’.

To register your interest in attending please email bigbang@nybep.org.uk with your schools details, the number of students you would like to bring and Year Group.
