With over 9000 students and teachers attending, the Big Bang Fair South East is the largest regional event of the nationwide Big Bang Programme. Taking place at the south of England showground, it’s a free event that's exciting, interactive and fun, but underpinned with serious career messages.

Our stand made good use of the IOP Outreach Toolkit and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Hands on Universe activities, inspiring and directly engaging over 1000 school students with a range of activities that taught the students important physics lessons:

All of the demonstrations proved very popular and after a tiring (and hot) two days at the festival we had made over 2000 straw oboes! 

Thanks to everyone at the IOP, University of Surrey and STFC who supported this year’s event.
