The Big Bang
11-14 March, 2015
If you love gadgets, technology, puzzles and have a curiosity for science, you will have enjoyed The Big Bang at NEC Birmingham from 11th – 14th March 2015. Staff and students from the School of Engineering and Digital Arts helped teams of young people to crack codes using electronic devices hidden in an electromagnetic spectrum in order to defeat the evil SPECTRA organisation!
Our staff were available to provide invaluable knowledge, study prospects and careers avenues in engineering and technology. Advice was available on our undergraduate programmes, industrial student placement scheme and graduate opportunities.
The Big Bang is the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths for young people in the UK. At its heart, The Big Bang is about careers and futures and highlighting the exciting possibilities that exist for young people with science, technology, engineering and maths backgrounds. It’s about the contribution they, with the right motivation, can make to the UK economy and to society in general. Led by EngineeringUK in partnership with the British Science Association, the Institute of Physics, the Science Council, the Royal Academy of Engineering and Young Engineers, the event is supported by The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills as well as numerous sponsors from industry.
"The Big Bang Fair exists to give young people and their parents a better understanding of how just fun and inspiring science and engineering can be." Professor Brian Cox OBE.
