The Big Bang Fair.

Crawley STEMfest

MAY - JUL 2018
Crawley, West Sussex

The original STEMfest is back for its seventh year!
It is a partnership between Crawley Borough Council, Crawley College (previously known as Central Sussex College) and STEM Sussex, the STEM outreach department of the University of Brighton. Headline sponsor for the second year is Gatwick Airport Limited.

We are currently developing the program for Crawley STEMfest 2017-2018 including STEM-related activities, shows and workshops in schools and colleges as well as our public event.
We are excited to announce that our public event: STEM in the Park will be held at the Memorial Gardens on 12th May 2018.

The festival will culminate in the Big Bang Fair South East – part of a nationwide program. Due to its popularity, for the first time ever, it will be held over two days; Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th June.
