The Big Bang South East is back! An extravaganza of shows, workshops and hands-on displays for 9 to 19 year olds takes place on 26th & 27th June 2019 at the South of England Showground in Ardingly.

Free for schools to attend, this event gives students sight of the range of STEM careers that are available, with the aim of inspiring them to continue studying STEM subjects and pursue STEM careers with a view to reducing the STEM skills gap.

In June 2018 over 10,000 students and teachers attended over the two days. 95% of students surveyed enjoyed themselves and 82% said they learnt a lot by taking part.

Over 200 employers and organisations will be providing a wide variety of ‘hands on’ interactive STEM activities designed to challenge student perceptions and inspire them to find out more about the world of STEM.

Students will have the opportunity to:

  • Meet inspirational STEM role models from over 200 employers including: apprentices; graduates and STEM Ambassadors.
  • Discuss the wide variety of STEM career options in a fun and inspirational environment.
