Wednesday 11th January
The Little Event is BIG’s one-day training session for people who are relatively new to STEM communication, whether you work in a science centre or museum, volunteer for a festival, are involved in university outreach, or do anything else to engage people with science, technology, engineering and maths. The day is crammed with sessions focusing on developing the different skills that are useful in face-to-face STEM communication; they are delivered by experienced science communicators following BIG's usual hands-on approach.
Presenter Skills David Price, Performer, science made simple
Careers Bridget Holligan, Director of Education & Engagement, Science Oxford
Evaluation Dom McDonald, Inspiring Science Fund Manager, Wellcome Trust

The Little Event also presents a great opportunity to meet people from across the UK working in similar roles and sharing similar experiences. The programme for the day includes sessions on Learning & Evaluation, Interacting with the Public, Presenting and Careers.
