Volunteer with us!

Are you a STEM professional looking to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers? We are still looking for volunteers to help us at The Big Bang Fair 2020. This takes place at the NEC in Birmingham from 11-14 March 2020. 

We need 100 volunteers everyday of The Fair and are calling volunteers from a diverse range of backgrounds. We know that greater diversity will lead to more young people being inspired to consider careers in science and engineering.

Women are underrepresented in engineering, making up only 12% of the workforce, and at A level only 29% of girls’ take STEM subjects. Black, Asian and minority ethnic people (BAME) are also underrepresented in the engineering sector.

"We would love to see greater representation of volunteers from different backgrounds whether that be gender, sexual orientation, race and physical abilities because we want every young person from all backgrounds to see that STEM can offer a varied, stimulating and rewarding career."  

We are still welcoming applications for all volunteering roles, especially for the following:   

‘Over 95% of our volunteers would recommend volunteering with us to a friend or colleague.’

Ken Mollison, Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge volunteer, said: "I attended thinking I would promote engineering and technology and inspire others. In fact, the reverse happened. I came away inspired by the creativity and technical ability of our young people. This I found truly inspiring."
