What is The Big Bang London?
Have a look at the video from 2012 to get a feel for the event... It's a busy, interactive and inspiring event with workshops, hands-on activities and shows.
What’s happening this year?
We have leading businesses, universities and organisations showing off their work and creating activities to get students engaged. Find out what’s on...
Who’s it for?
There’s something for everyone… Whether you get inspired by physics and chemistry or get more excited by 3D animation, massage or food technology, The Big Bang London will give you the chance to take part in masses of activities as well as talk to professionals about their careers.
All schools and colleges, maintained and independent, primary, secondary and FE are welcome to The Big Bang London. You don’t have to be a London school, if King’s Cross is easier to get to than your regional event then please do join us.
Do more than visit...
All students are welcome to just come along to The Big Bang London and take part in all the activities BUT the day will be even better if they get the chance to show off their own work too! On 3 July part of the event will be a display of students’ work and there is a whole host of prizes and awards up for grabs, presented by our special guest star The Gadget Show’s Ortis Deley.
The work can be anything done in class, after-school club or as coursework.
• Have your students done an investigation in science they could write up?
• Have they done a project on statistics or data in maths?
• Or have they researched and built something in D&T?
If so, get them to create a poster display about their work. All students’ work is viewed by our team of volunteers from research and industry, so every student gets to talk to real scientists, engineers and designers about what they have done.
Great! What do I do now?
