This year’s Big Bang Fair has gone digital – all day on 14 July.
Big Bang, an annual event inspiring children to explore science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), has teamed up with a wide range of experts to give kids the chance to join in wherever they are.
Take part online to find out how young people, automated technology and modern manufacturing are playing important roles in responding to the challenges of coronavirus. It’s all about amazing people doing incredible things!
Put your questions to top engineers and scientists, and take part in interactive polls and a competition!
At 1:10pm, Network Rail engineers will talk about how the railway has come together to rise to one of its biggest challenges ever – keeping vital train services and rail freight moving despite the government’s restrictions to combat the pandemic.
Our teams across Britain have had to find new ways of working to ensure people who need to travel by train can do so safely – and work with the freight industry to make sure essential supplies reach supermarket shelves.
