The Little Event is BIG’s one-day mini-conference for people who are 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 introductory sessions focusing on developing the different skills that are useful in STEM communication; they are delivered by experienced science communicators following BIG's usual hands-on approach.

Thursday 24th January 2019, 9.30am - 4.30pm

at the Thinktank Museum, Birmingham

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 Networking, Managing Projects, Presenting, Audience analysis and Careers.

The Little Event costs £45 for BIG members. If you are not a member, you need to join BIG at an annual cost of £30. 

We would be happy to fund membership, registration and travel for two individuals in MPLS to attend*. If you are interested please email Michaela Livingstone-Banks with a brief explanation of why are interested and how attending would be valuable for you by Friday 11 Jan. This is open to staff and researchers (including DPhil students).

All we ask in return is that you write a short report of your experience to share with others interested in science communication.
