The Big Bang fair will be taking place from Wednesday 16th March to Saturday 19th March this year. It is the UK's largest celebration of STEM subjects, and the Digital Schoolhouse is proud to announce its support and presence at the show. 

We're incredibly excited about the four day event, and look forward to representing the Computing and Tech industries with an amazing lineup of speakers and presenters across the four days.

The programme of events kick off on Wednesday morning with an inspirational opening keynote by Intel. Then stick around to take part in interactive workshop which demonstrates how sand is turned into the microchips that power our computers! Then stick around for a treasure hunt, with real prizes to be won at the end. Wednesday ends with an exciting talk by one of the key people behind games such as Gangs of London and Alien Vs Predator.

Thursday is just as exciting and begins with Code Warriors, an interactive session by Kuato Studios that uses iPads and games to teach programming. Then hear from Tom Perry, one of the key people behind the games Forza Horizons and Forza Horizons 2. The afternoon is dedicated to a special extended drop in session where visitors get a chance to dip in and try some of unplugged activities that make the Digital Schoolhouse so unique. 

Friday is full of thrills, with sessions focusing on unique ways to use play based learning and non computer based activities to teach computing in unique creative ways. 

The show ends with a bang on Saturday! Start the day creating crazy and wonderful box monsters and end it with a session on dance and magic to help you understand programming concepts.
