Little Event programme August 16 (pdf)

The Little Event is for people who are relatively new to STEM communication, whether they work in a science centre or museum, volunteer for a festival, are involved in university outreach, or do anything else to engage people with sciences.

It’s a lot like the BIG Event, but a bit smaller, and all crammed into one busy day. There will be four sessions, each focusing on developing a different skill, delivered by experienced science communicators (and familiar faces around BIG) following our usual hand-on approach:

  • Learning Theory and Evaluation
  • Presenting Science
  • Interacting with the Public
  • Careers

But of course the BIG Event 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.

Bursaries available

Sponsored by
Graphic Science StoryCog

Thanks to generous support from Graphic Science (, StoryCog ( and BIG we are able to offer 15 bursaries to help those who would otherwise not be able to attend.

Each bursary is worth £100 which includes 1 year’s BIG membership, registration fees for the Little Event and £25 towards travel expenses.

Applying is simple, just tell us on the registration form why you would like the opportunity to come to the event and how you think it will benefit your personal and professional development.

We appreciate that some of you may not be able to attend unless you receive a bursary. You will not be invoiced/charged until after the bursary decision has been made when you will have the opportunity to withdraw your registration.
