More about the Little Event...

Who is the Little Event for?

The Little Event is relevant 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. Around 40 people usually come along, keeping our event small and friendly.

What goes on there?

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.

But of course it isn't just about the sessions, it’s the people you meet there too. The Little Event presents a great opportunity to meet people from across the UK working in similar roles and sharing similar experiences. The programme for the day might include sessions on Learning & Evaluation, Interacting with the Public, Presenting and Careers.

Who comes?

Some of our previous delegates have come from the British Science Association,
Centre for Life Newcastle, Imperial College London, Royal SocietySenseSci, Noisy Toys and
University of Birmingham.

Some of our previous knowledgeable and experienced speakers have represented science made simple, Science Oxford, Wellcome Trust and the Institute of Physics.

Can I afford it?

BIG is a not-for-profit organisation so we try and keep event fees affordable. A bursary to attend is available. Applications open in December. This is open to members who have not been to one of our events before.
