Online registration for the 2012 Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair is now open.
Taking place at the NEC in Birmingham in March from 15-17, the Big Bang Fair aims to bring the thrill of science to life for thousands of young people aged five to 19 and inspire future talent. There is a range of hands-on activities for young people to do, from building chocolate bridges and experimenting with a bionic eye, to meeting robots and exploring the wonders of outer space with the Mars Rover.
The three day fair combines more than 120 interactive activities, exhibitions and live shows, such as Brainiac Live!, to demonstrate just how fun and inspiring science, technology, engineering and maths can be. School groups will be invited to visit the first two days of The Big Bang Fair, which will also open to families and community groups on the Saturday.
The Big Bang Fair also hosts the finals of the 2012 National Science & Engineering Competition where students from across the country will compete to claim one of the UK’s most prestigious science and engineering honours for young people.
Paul Jackson, Chief Executive of The Big Bang Fair 2012, said: “The Big Bang Fair is set to be bigger and better than before when it arrives at The NEC, Birmingham next March. With lots of amazing events and activities lined-up, it’s the perfect opportunity for young people to discover what science and engineering is all about.
“Over 29,000 people visited The Big Bang Fair in London last year so we advise that parents and teachers register for free tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.”
