The Fair is now fully booked for visitors and project entrants.
To get a flavour of what to expect, watch the highlights from The Big Bang East and West Midlands in 2012...
What's happening at The Big Bang East Midlands in 2013?
Immersive Theatres is an adventurous 360° planetarium experience company. From school shows to birthdays, we have the experience for you!
We utilise mobile digital domes (planetariums) and deliver videos, music, images and sound all around you, immersing you within our dome. Just imagine breath-taking visuals and sound washing over you - that’s the experience you have with us!
The IET is leading the development of an international engineering and technology community, sharing and advancing knowledge to enhance people’s lives. They will be bringing along a series of activities to help engage students with engineering.
Royal Society of Chemistry
The RSC will be bringing along their equipment to show how explosive careers in chemistry can be! The RSC works in education, science policy, conferences and the public promotion of chemistry.
Society of Biology
Come along and find out more about biology and the variety of jobs available in the subject! Our vision is of a society that understands the true value of biology and how it can contribute to improving life for all.
The Zooniverse began with a single project, Galaxy Zoo, launched in July 2007. The Galaxy Zoo team had expected a fairly quiet life, but were overwhelmed and overawed by the response to the project. Once they'd recovered from their server crash, which was buckling under the strain, they set about planning the future!
Galaxy Zoo was important because not only was it incredibly popular, but it produced many unique scientific results and we are committed to producing real research.
The Institution of Civil Engineers - Bridge to Schools project
The Bridge to Schools project was successfully launched in 2009. We aim to make children more aware of the work of civil engineers and their contribution to society. The project involves pupils building a 12.5m long cable-stayed bridge within an hour session.
First Step Workshops
We run nationwide vocational science workshops featuring a forensic crime scene investigation. Every student plays a part and First Step hope to inspire your students about science and give them a science lesson they won't forget!
Go Motorsport return to The Big Bang East Midlands with their tremendously successful Wheel Changing Challenge – come and try for the fastest time on the rally car!
Chilled Food Association
Come and Chill with us!
Enjoy science? Love food? Ever thought about making them your career?
There are lots of opportunities in the chilled food manufacturing sector, as well as international travel, responsibility and financial reward - for enthusiastic science graduates – but not many people know about them... Until now that is!
The coolest careers are in chilled and we can't wait to tell you more!
Our stand at The Big Bang East Midlands will also get you thinking about bugs, hygiene and how your food is stored. Come and take our hand washing challenge, pick up a free fridge thermometer and grab a couple of Nanobugs temporary tattoos – the bugs might look cute but they’re deadly!
Also at The Big Bang East Midlands: IBM, Rolls-Royce and Derby University!
