The Little Event
Wednesday 13th January 2016 Thinktank, Birmingham
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 Presenting, Working with Researchers, Hands-on Learning, Event Programming and Careers.
Speakers so far will include:
- James Soper, The Juggling Scientist
- Brian Mackenwells, Public Engagement Officer, University of Oxford
- Toni Hamill, Education Officer, Life Science Centre
- Bridget Holligan, Director of Education and Engagement, Science Oxford
- Ashley Kent, Head of Programming, Cheltenham Science Festival
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.
