The Science of Santa

At Christmas, Santa will deliver gifts around the world to 1.6 billion children. That’s a tough job which takes a lot of work behind the scenes. Find out more about the 'Science of Santa' with this fun infographic.

The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair teamed up with economists from the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) to lift the lid on 'The Science of Santa' in December 2013.

Families who want to know more about how technology works and meet the people behind it can use the Christmas period to plan a trip to The Big Bang Fair at the NEC in Birmingham.

The annual event inspires young people to consider a career in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). The event, aimed primarily at 11-14 year old children and their parents, will take place from 11 to 14 March 2020.
