The Big Bang

@ School Events


Big Bang Near Me @ School Events

EngineeringUK launched The Big Bang Fair in 2009, in partnership with the UK’s major science and engineering bodies. Since then, The Big Bang has become the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering, arts and maths for young people in the UK, demonstrating the exciting and rewarding opportunities available.

One of the main aims of The Big Bang is to bring STEAM into local schools and colleges throughout the UK and the Near Me @ School programme provides the perfect platform for this to succeed.

Our Approach

Learn by Design supports schools and colleges in Midlands, Yorkshire and Humber and London to showcase their own STEM/STEAM projects, by holding a Big Bang @ School event to both excite pupils about STEAM subjects, inspire them to consider science or engineering careers and unite local STEAM companies with the school’s potential future engineers.

Hold a Big Bang @ School Event

Learn by Design provides on-hand support for your schools event. Using The Big Bang @ School toolkit, you are provided with all the information and resources you need, from fun and informative activities to robust careers materials and support for planning a great STEAM fair in your school.

As well as step by step guidance for creating a successful event. We can support you with:

  •  Contacts for companies and institutions to support your event.

  •  Big Bang toolkit with advice on running and promoting your event.

  •  Big Bang online event registration.

  •  Regular advice from the regional organising team (including on-the-day support).

  •  Links to potential sponsors for The Big Bang Regional Fair.
