The Science & Engineering Fair is aimed at students from KS2. All stands and activities will have a focus on the application of STEM skills in business and training and give ideas about jobs for the future. All stands will provide inter-active learning experiences for your pupils.

This is third Big Bang Fair in Cumbria and follows the success of the first event held at Rheged in 2011 and the second event held at Carlisle in 2012. It will follow the pattern of the National Big Bang Science and Engineering Fairs held in March each year in various cities.
