BIG is the skills sharing network for individuals involved in the communication of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects

BIG runs regular events and training courses on issues relevant to science communication and informal science and maths education. We also provide great opportunities for networking with other professional science communicators and so much more. Find out what we do.

Book an Event

Our annual conference - The BIG Event - is regarded as the best science communication conference in the UK as a source of best practice skills-sharing and networking. 

Our mini conference - The Little Event - is a scaled-down version of the BIG Event and is ideal for those just starting out in their STEM engagement career.

Keep an eye out for other events too!
