EngineeringUK launched The Big Bang 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 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 STEM into local schools and colleges throughout the UK and the Near Me @ school programme provides the perfect platform for this to succeed.
Learn by Design supports schools and colleges in the Midlands to showcase their own STEM projects by holding a Big Bang @ School event to both excite pupils about STEM subjects, inspire them to consider science or engineering careers and unite local STEM companies with the school’s potential future engineers.
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 STEM fair in your school.
As well as step by step guidance for creating a successful event. We can support you with:
