The Big Bang Fair.

Crawley STEMfest

MAY - JUL 2017
Crawley, West Sussex

The original STEMfest has now finished its sixth year, and was a partnership between Crawley Borough Council, Central Sussex College and STEM Sussex, the STEM outreach department of the University of Brighton. Headline sponsor was Gatwick Airport Limited.

Whilst we have finished the program for 2016-2017, we are currently developing the program for Crawley STEMfest 2017-2018.


Crawley STEMfest 2016-2017 was a series of STEM-related workshops, activities and shows that took place in schools and Colleges during May and June. Employers had the chance to showcase their innovative business to their future workforce. The festival culminated in the Big Bang Fair South East – part of a nationwide program.

The festival included activities in schools and companies, as well as a public event in Memorial Gardens on 20th May 2017.
