Popular science fair for all pupils

EXPLOSIONS, experiments and the very latest in science and engineering are to combine in Glasgow at The Big Bang Scotland 2013, set to be one of Scotland’s biggest and most exciting celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) for young people.

Places at The Big Bang Scotland are open to primary and secondary pupils, industry professionals and members of the public from all over Scotland and registration is now open and entry is completely free.

The fair will be held at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow on Friday, June 14, with the aim of enthusing young people about STEM subjects and encouraging and inspiring them to choose a career in these fields.

The fair has previously been held in Perth, attracting around 1,000 pupils to the city’s Concert Hall, but the new venue means this year’s event has capacity for around 10,000 people.

Dozens of interactive workshops and presentations will be on offer for schools, as well as numerous hands-on activities for pupils to get stuck into throughout the day.
