When: Thursday 27th June 2019
Where: Derby Arena, Royal Way, Pride Park, Derby DE24 8JB
Young people from across the East Midlands will come together to enjoy all things STEM as the annual event moves to Derby Arena in June and BLOODHOUND Education will be there with the BLOODHOUND Showcar.
The Big Bang Fair East Midlands, sponsored by Derby City Council's e4e programme and University of Derby, will increase event participation from 2,000 to 3,000 school children and home educators as a result of the move to its new home on Pride Park in Derby.
The event, set for 27th June 2019, aims to be bigger and more elaborate than ever before, as the push to drive career inspiration into the landscape of East Midlands schools is ever stronger, with Engineering UK reporting that 203,000 roles requiring engineering skills are needed to be filled annually through to 2024.
As well as engaging hands-on activities, have-a-go workshops and inspirational speakers this year will also see ‘sector zones’ throughout the exhibition area for young people to explore, all with the overarching aim of filling the STEM skills gap for the future. Schools can also take part in The Big Bang Competition to find the regional Young Engineer and Young Scientist of the Year.
