Key info



Big Bang Bristol is a two day science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) extravaganza. Split over two floors; we have 30+ researchers in the Research Zone giving hands on demonstrations, getting kids doing real experiments to get an idea of what research is like, and to learn about the story behind each researcher. In our Enterprise Zone you will find 20+ companies delivering great demonstrations about the STEM that goes on in their company. We will also have University and colleges giving advice and information about degrees and apprenticeship opportunities.

We have space for 500 students in each school session. If you want your school to come get in touch asap

On Thursday the 6th from 3-7 the Fair will be open to everyone and anyone. We will be promoting closer to the time, but we want as many of you to come and experience, what will go down in Bristol history as the greatest* STEM fair ever!

*Until we do it again next year

We want you to come and do really cool stuff for the kids! We want you to show kids what it is that you absolutely love about your research and job, make the kids come away thinking how cool your research is but also how cool you are because of it. You will have a small area no bigger than a 4x2m table, and you can do whatever you want in that space to show how your research is the best in the world! One day one of them might be a collaborator!

Get in touch with us to discuss your idea now

Is your company STEM? Then we want you to come and show the STEM your company does, and tell them how they get into that area. We want you to give demonstrations as well, we want the kids coming away from your stand thinking how amazingly cool it was! Give them hands on demonstrations, freebies, leaflets, whatever it is we want them to have learnt about you and your company. They are your future employees!
