BIG (formerly, The British Interactive Group) is a not-for-profit organisation for all people involved in informal science communication activities and hands-on education projects in the UK. They run a whole host of different events and training sessions, including their annual conference: 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 a great 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.
For researchers or support staff who are keen to explore the world of STEM engagement and get inspired, this is a great experience - it will certainly open your eyes to world of possibilities and increase or reinforce your understanding of good practice!


Full conference (inc. conference dinner) - £240 early bird rate (£280 after 20th April 2018)

2-days only - £240
1-day only - £120
