The Big Bang Fair North East 2017

14th July 2017 @ 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.

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.

Have your students undertaken a STEM project?

Why not bring them along? At the events your students are invited to showcase their STEM projects. Prizes will be awarded at the event and a select group of projects chosen to represent the North East at the Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Fair in March 2018.

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