Make our day go with a bang!
Published 27 June 2012
STEM Sussex, the outreach department of the University of Brighton’s Faculty of Science and Engineering, is the leading partner in Crawley STEMfest 2012, which is taking place now in schools and colleges and throughout the community.
STEMfest 2012 culminates in the Big Bang South East regional fair, part of the biggest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) for young people in the UK, at The Hawth, Crawley, on 5 July.
The fair is billed as a "fun, action-packed day of hands-on workshops and innovative shows" and more than 1,500 9-19-year-olds from across the south-east are expected to attend. Professor Hal Sosabowski, the university's professor of Public Understanding of Science, and his team will be among the headline acts, presenting two editions of the "noisy, colourful and highly entertaining" Bigger Bang! show.
STEM Sussex is organising the event in partnership with Crawley Borough Council and Central Sussex College, and volunteers are being sought to help make the day go with a bang. The fair will also feature the regional heats of the National Science & Engineering Competition, celebrating the achievements of young people throughout the south-east. Volunteers with a background in STEM disciplines are being asked to help with supporting judging and with career networking sessions.
A range of other opportunities for volunteers from all backgrounds is also available, including acting as guides to young visitors on the day.
Anyone wanting to get involved should contact email@example.com or phone STEM Sussex on 01273 644178.
