Huge success for The Big Bang West and East Midlands Fairs

Huge success for The Big Bang Fair West Midlands and The Big Bang Fair East Midlands.

2016 has been another huge year for successfully engaging over 3000 young people in STEM thanks to the Big Bang Fairs.

We would like to thank all the exhibitors, volunteers, teachers and young people who make this event an inspirational celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths.

Learn by Design are proud to be a part of promoting STEM in all its many forms and facets of education through workshops, shows and keynote speakers. The delivery of The Big Bang Near Me Regional Events are the showcase events that bring to life the interactive and innovative technology that is available for young people to explore today.

“Children very happy, they discovered lots of new things.”

“We hadn’t been to this event before, so we were not totally sure what to expect. Having a toddler, I wasn’t sure how it would work out, but thanks to playdoh, Lego and trains, plus the animals, we were actually able to stay all day, which was great for myself and the older ones.”

“The coding workshop was excellent. The students were straight into activities and really engaged.”

“Visiting the Big Bang Derby was an inspiring experience, my son really enjoyed all the activities, workshops and shows. Also, the educational ratio was worth a day out off school.”
