Volunteers needed for National Big Bang Fair 2015

The Nuclear Institute is seeking volunteers to promote careers in the nuclear sector and nuclear technology to young people at the National Big Bang Fair.

The Nuclear Institute (NI) aims to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to young people from across the country through informative and interactive nuclear energy related information and events.

The Big Bang is a UK wide programme led by EngineeringUK aiming to bring science and engineering to life for young people aged 7-19. It celebrates and raises the profile of young people’s achievements in science and engineering and encourages more young people to take part in STEM initiatives with support from their parents and teachers.

The NI is running a stand in collaboration with ECITB after our first successful support in 2014 where the organisers hosted 75,000 people over the four days, so this is a great opportunity to interact with a large audience.

Your Help 

To make our attendance a success we need help from our members to help host our stand and the interactive activities, which will involve demonstrating the activities, providing information on nuclear energy and career pathways and answering a wide variety of questions!

You will find your time rewarding and engaging, as it is a great chance to shape the future of our industry, give something back and have some fun at the same time!

The event is held at the Birmingham NEC from Wednesday 11th – Saturday 14th March. The NI are able to provide assistance with the cost of travel and overnight accommodation for members if required, and will provide briefing notes in advance of the event.

Thank you very much to all the people who volunteered to help! We now have enough volunteers for the day.
