The Big Bang Fair South West brings Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) alive for schoolchildren, putting classroom learning in context and taking them on a journey to discover the STEM careers open to them.
Featuring explosive theatre shows and engaging, immersive activities, the event is an opportunity for schoolchildren to meet some of the South West’s leading scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians, and to discover how school subjects can lead to fantastic, rewarding careers. It is about inspiring young people from all backgrounds to study science, technology, engineering and maths.
Plymouth University will be present at this event. Our hands-on activities include the mathematics of bubbles, double pendulum, soap bubble wires and harmonographs.
