Big Bang North East

Big Bang North East

This programme is now closed

We are delivering the Big Bang Near Me programme in the North East - a UK-wide programme of regional events aimed at inspiring school children to follow a career in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

The Big Bang North East drives the STEM agenda in the region, bringing together established and highly effective regional and local partnerships with clusters, employers, STEM educational organisations and a strong network of 1200 STEM Ambassadors.

We work together to achieve a world-leading education support programme that encourages and inspires the next generation of STEM specialists and innovative future workforce.

We run a range of events to raise the aspirations and awareness of young people about STEM-based careers. The culmination is a large celebration of regional engineering, spread over two days called 'Bring It On', at which thousands of pupils from regional schools get to interact with regional employers and see engineering brought to life.

The next Bring It On event will take place in October 2019. For more information, visit
