The Big Bang Challenge

When you arrive at The Fair you will be given a Big Bang Challenge pack: complete the fun tasks throughout the day and drop off your entry form before you leave for a chance to win an Airblock drone and Kindle Fire! 

All of the tasks are geared towards interacting with scientists and engineers on the showfloor to discover the breadth of jobs in STEM, and to ensure that visitors truly experience the magic of The Fair.

Suitable for all ages – there is a primary challenge pack and a secondary challenge pack.

To support the Big Bang Challenge and to ensure your class get the most out of The Fair we have created pre-Fair and post-Fair lesson plans for both primary and secondary school classes encouraging your students to explore the world of STEM and the exciting careers that exist within it.

Career Captains

Look out for our Career Captains – people working as scientists and engineers, or those studying STEM subjects. They will be wearing purple ‘ask me what I do’ t-shirts and blue careers armbands.

Career Captains can help you complete the Big Bang Challenge and can be found all around the showfloor. Ask them questions to try and work out what they do!

In the meantime, you can start meeting our Career Captains and explore some real jobs in STEM now.

Suitable for all ages.
