WinAtSchool goes Bang

Next week sees the start of The Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Fair, a massive STEM event primarily targeting those aged 7 to 19. The main event will be taking place in Birmingham at the NEC between the 11th and 14th of March. During the weeks and months that follow smaller Big Bang ‘Near Me’ events will be taking place in schools and colleges across the UK.

The ICSE will be attending the main event and several of the Near Me events to promote our free mathematics and statistics schools competition WinAtSchool. Please come along and have a go at our Practice Quiz or if you are attending with Year 7 to 11 pupils take part in the Prize Competition. Why not get some practice in now.

You can view all the events going on at The Big Bang and get a full list of the Near Me locations from the main website at thebigbangfair.co.uk. Our schedule throughout March is below :
