As part of a 3D-Printing demonstration - models can be printed by young visitors to the Royal Navy during the show to demonstrate the printing technology  which is used by the RN ashore and on board ships at sea.

The Big Bang Fair is open from Wednesday to Friday, 9.30am to 4pm, and on Saturday, 9am to 4.30pm, and will be attended by over 80,000 visitors who will hear from inspiring engineers and scientists about opportunities at some of the UK's biggest companies and organisations.

Visitors will experience a combination of high-octane theatre shows, 150+ interactive stands and workshops, inspiring science and engineering projects and careers information, resources and activities.

This award-winning event also attracts some of the most STEM-talented school students and hosts the finals of The Big Bang Competition, which in 2017 saw 600 young people pitch their science and engineering projects to judges.

The annual contest recognises and rewards young people's achievements in all areas of STEM, as well as helping them build skills and confidence in project-based work.

At the Big Bang Fair in 2017, 10% of UK secondary schools registered, 92% of 11-14 year olds reported enjoying the event, 80% of 11-14 year olds said they learnt a lot from their visit, 24,750 careers engagements; and 40% of young visitors asked about careers.
