2019 BIG Event PROGRAMME: FINAL_BIG_Programme_2019.pdf

BIG event 2019

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 talents to 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. You can view last year's Programme for BIG Event 2018  by clicking Here. The 2019 programme can be found here: FINAL_BIG_Programme_2019.pdf
