The Big Bang Fair is the largest celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) for young people in the UK. It aims to show young people (primarily aged 7-19) how many exciting and rewarding opportunities there are out there for them with the right experience and qualifications.
Through the Big Bang Fair and a series of regional and local events, the organisation works with partner organisations – across business and industry, government and academia – such as Leonardo, to try and give a flavour of the real scale of engineering and science in the UK.
This year’s Big Bang Fair took place from 13-16 March 2019 at the NEC in Birmingham, featuring over 200 organisations from the public, private and voluntary sectors. Led by EngineeringUK in partnership with the Royal Academy of Engineering, the event is supported by numerous sponsors from industry, academia and the public sector.
Leonardo was again proud to be sponsoring and attending the Big Bang Fair, offering visitors to our stand the chance to discover the exciting world of engineering.
