BIG bursaries provide financial assistance to enable members to attend one of our conference events. When applications open, you can apply for them here.
The BIG Event
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.
Visit our Session Proposals Page to propose and view session ideas for the 2020 BIG Event: http://bigevent.info/wp-login.php
Session proposals close in February 2020.
Early Bird booking opens in March 2020.
The Little Event
The Little Event is BIG’s one-day training session for people who are new to STEM communication. It takes place in January and booking opens in November.
The programme is designed to give a gentle introduction to the skills and opportunities of a career in informal science education, as well as providing a friendly networking opportunity.
Sci Comm Socials
These are not organised by BIG directly but are regular socials for science communication practitioners held all over the UK to help you network and keep up-to-date with the latest news.
