With over 9,000 students and teachers attending, The Big Bang Fair South East is the largest regional event of the nationwide Big Bang Programme. Taking place at the South of England Showground, it’s an exciting and interactive event that is great fun, but underpinned with serious careers messages.

Students will take part in a range of interactive workshops, shows and activities and get to try new things. They will also meet engineers, scientists, apprentices and other representatives from local employers and PEIs and discover what a future career in STEM might look like.
