Little Event 2018
Wednesday 17th 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.
But of course it isn't just about the sessions, it’s the people you meet there too. 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.
The Little Event takes place in early January and costs £45 for BIG members. If you are not a member, you need to join BIG to attend the Little Event and the cost for this is £30. Join BIG now
