Big Bang Fair Midlands (Relaxed Session) 2020

Derby Arena
Royal Way
DE24 8JB
Friday, 26 Jun 2020
Opening hours for visitors: 15:00 - 16:30

For the first time ever, we are holding a session specifically for young people who may prefer a relaxed, quieter or more accessible environment

The Big Bang Fair Midlands is part of the major UK wide programme which celebrates and raises the profile of the achievements of young people (age range 9 -19) in STEM.  

Learn by Design are immensely proud of the inclusivity we bring to all of our events to ensure that a broad spectrum of people can participate. To further support inclusivity, we are delighted to announce that for the first time ever, we will be holding a relaxed session specifically designed for those young people who may prefer a calmer, less busy environment but still want to enjoy all the Science and Engineering fun and opportunities that the Big Bang Fair can offer them.


What happens at a Big Bang Near Me? 
There are lots of brilliant ways to get involved in this event, with everything from interactive shows and workshops to fully interactive activities where you can get hands-on with real-life science and engineering, so you can experience what it's like to work in the industries that use these skills and get loads of great careers advice at the same time!
