About the event

Hands-on activities, have-a-go workshops and inspirational speakers – Big Bang East Midlands 2020 is set to be bigger and better than ever!

Due to the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we can confirm that this event has been cancelled. Read our news story here.

The Big Bang Near Me Fair is the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) for young people in the East Midlands and best of all it's completely free to come along and join in.

We give young people aged 7 to 19 the chance to try out over 100 hands-on activities, see mind-boggling shows, hear from inspiring engineers and scientists from some of the area's biggest companies and find out about the opportunities available in STEM.

We want everyone who comes to The Big Bang Fair to understand how important scientists and engineers really are; they literally shape the world around us!

So why not bring your family or community group along to join in our fun interactive event and really see Science and Engineering come to life? There is no limit to the size of group you can bring.
