We can hardly contain our excitement as we gear up for the biggest STEM event in the South West! Next week, Wednesday 27th June, will see The Big Bang Fair South West take over Bristol UWE’s Conference and Events Centre as we host a huge celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM)!

We can’t wait to ‘wow’ our visitors by bringing together an array of activities including a show stage featuring live science shows from Dr. Matt Pritchard and Mad Science, as well as showcasing a range of hands of exhibitors and activities from a range of businesses cross the region.

Alongside the exciting shows and exhibits the finals of the South West Scientist and Young Engineer of the Year Competition will take place, culminating in an awards ceremony, with winner progressing on to the national finals the following March at the NEC in Birmingham.

We have been overwhelmed with the enthusiasm of our exhibitors and would like to say to special thank you to all our sponsors. Our Gold Sponsors include Airbus, Edwards Vacuums and Specsavers; Silver Sponsors Stirling Dynamics and Bronze Sponsors RAF. We are so grateful for our sponsors support, without such this event would not be possible. Other supporters of the event include Empire Engineering, the STEM Learning STEM Ambassadors Hub and UWE Bristol.

This year’s registration is now closed and we know all our visitors will not be disappointed. We look forward to welcoming all those attending on Wednesday 27th June and hope that everyone has a wonderful bang-wiz filled day!
