Training for early-career STEM communicators from BIG

The Little Event is a training session 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 Little Event is crammed with introductory sessions focusing on developing the different skills that are useful in STEM communication; they are delivered by experienced science communicators.

Session 1: Thursday 20 January, 3:00 – 6:30pm and Session 2: Saturday 22 January, 9:00am – 1:15pm

The 2022 Little Event will be online live and spread over two days. The days are designed to work together and are booked as a package (i.e. not sold separately). They are LIVE events, so bear in mind the times given are GMT (London). The 2022 programme includes sessions on Evaluation, Managing Projects, Presenting, Science Capital, and Careers and will include plenty of networking time as well as short comfort breaks.

BIG members: cost £50

Non-members: cost is £85 and includes BIG Membership for 1 year
