Mackley is participating in an interactive event designed to celebrate and raise the profile of young people’s achievements in science and engineering.
The Big Bang Fair South East, which takes at the South of England Showground, West Sussex on 26-27 June, is organised to encourage more young people to get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) initiatives.
With thousands of nine to 19-year-olds attending, the Big Bang Fair is a STEM careers fair with a difference. The event links future employers with young people, and aims to inspire them to study STEM subjects and consider meaningful careers in these areas.
Organisers describe the event as a ‘full-on, noisy, fun day’, designed to enable companies to establish connections with like-minded individuals, businesses and organisations from across the region.
In addition to sponsoring the event, Mackley will also be represented at the accompanying exhibition, engaging with attending students.
David Knapp, Mackley’s Business Development Manager, said:
“After the success of both the 2017 and 2018 event, Mackley is once again delighted to sponsor the Big Bang Fair South East, particularly as the event focuses on the STEM sector.
“Encouraging the right calibre of young people to consider a career in civil engineering, with all the opportunities and challenges it offers, is vital for Mackley and other companies in the sector.
“We are looking forward to the event, which will provide us with the opportunity to meet the local young engineers of the future.”
