Discovery Friday is a showcase of schools and STEM clubs from across the country that have undertaken the British Science Association’s CREST Discovery Awards or similar, presenting fun and exciting projects in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). Some involving large groups of students, others impressively completed in just a day, the showcase highlighted the many schemes and resources out there to get started with project work, and realise that science is something everyone can enjoy!

In it's first year 14 schools exhibited a range of projects, at The Big Bang Fair 2015. The British Science Association in partnership with The Big Bang Fair (supported by the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills) offered these schools an opportunity to present their work to visiting schools, businesses and VIPs at the Fair.
