The Birmingham NEC is set to host The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair, the largest free celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) for young people in the UK, on the 15th – 18th March 2017.

From learning the science behind creating your own make-up, to understanding the engineering behind programming robots, children all over the UK will flock to Birmingham for the award-winning Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair.

A four-day event, The Big Bang Fair is a combination of exciting theatre shows, interactive workshops and exhibits, as well careers information from STEM professionals, that aims to inspire young people to consider a career in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).

The Fair, aimed primarily at 11-14 year old children, their parents and teachers, will take place from 15 to 18 March 2017. Saturday 18th March is the day for families to attend, with a focus on the many exciting careers in engineering and science that are out there for young people.

Young visitors to the Fair will be able to explore everything from the science of rollercoasters, to the engineering behind chocolate. High-octane theatre shows from popular presenters will also be delivered throughout the course of the four days.

The Fair offers experiences in virtual reality, medicine, marine biology, film and TV, space exploration, explosive chemistry, crime-solving, robots, computer coding, microscopic bugs, giant trucks and more.
