Sci Comm Socials
BIG’s Sci Comm Socials are a regular social gathering of people who work in, or are interested in, science communication, outreach or public engagement in STEM. The sessions run approximately every two weeks and each session is hosted by a different group/person/organisation. These are primarily social in nature, but it’s also a chance to share news, ideas, upcoming events and thoughts on STEM communication.
Sessions are free to attend and you do not need to be a Member of BIG to participate.

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.
