An upcoming FREE event of interest is The Big Bang Fair

 The UK's largest celebration of science and engineering heads to Birmingham Bringing science, technology & engineering to life

What is it? The Big Bang Fair 13th - 16th March 2014

From the 13-16th March 2014, The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Fair will pitch up to The NEC, Birmingham, to host the UK’s largest celebration of science and engineering for young people. Organisers aim to welcome around 75,000 people to the free science and engineering extravaganza. With places going fast, register early to avoid missing out at: www.thebigbangfair.co.uk.

The Fair hosts an astounding array of activities and live performances, with the first two days open to school groups and Saturday and Sunday open to families.

This year, the mission to thrill and inspire future scientists and engineers reaches new levels as TV science presenter Greg Foot (BBC, Channel4, Discovery Channel) unleashes his brand new show all about the science of explosions that have shaped our modern world. The show, Kaboom! looks at topics from the chemistry of gunpowder to the anatomy of highly explosive detonations, the dissection of an internal combustion engine to the power of the hybrid rockets that have taken us into space. Visitors can expect loud jet engines set off live on stage, cannon balls launched above their heads, towering showers of sparks and coloured flame balls.

For those with curious minds and stomachs, TV presenter Stefan Gates will be taking people on an explosive journey into the science of their lunch. There will  be rockets, edible insects, extreme flatulence, loud explosions and jaw-droppingly visual chemistry.
