Bring your school or college group, or your children, along to an event near you

Bring and demonstrate an individual student or STEM Club project

Do your students have a burning idea for a science, technology, engineering or maths project? Maybe you’re really proud of something they’ve been working on in school?

Students demonstrate thousands of amazing ideas at The Big Bang Near Me every year. How about a pedal-powered freezer that can be used to deliver ice cream to African countries? Students get feedback on their work from scientists and engineers and can meet other budding young inventors.
