The BIG Event is a three day get-together every summer to share skills and experiences, develop professional links and keep up-to-date with the STEM engagement field. This is the place to hone your skills and recharge your professional batteries, pick up great ideas and show off your talent to your peers.

It provides an unmissable opportunity to squeeze the skills and ideas out of all the STEM engagement people you can in a short space of time. It’s like power juice for STEM communicators.

The content for the BIG Event is created by the members. And the people who say they get the most out of it are the people who contribute the content. Members can login to  view last few years' worth of Programmes , or view the 2019 Programme by clicking Here
