BIG Event 2017 – Registration open

Registration now open with early bird prices for The BIG Event 19-21 July 2017 at Life Science Centre, Newcastle UK.

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. Whether you consider yourself a science communicator, or are interested in how you can get more STEM into your programmes, this is the place to gather ideas, hone skills and recharge your professional batteries. It provides an unmissable opportunity to squeeze the goodness out of all the STEM engagement people you can in a short space of time. It’s like power juice for STEM communicators.

This year the BIG Event comes of age; 21 years – still growing and still supporting the science communication industry to develop. BIG helps individuals and organisations small and large to exchange skills on an equal footing and in a warm and friendly environment.

We have some party plans to let you know about soon, but in the meantime, if you have stories, photos or ideas you’d like to put forward to help us celebrate, please get in touch.

The content for the BIG Event is created by the members. And the people who say they get the most out of it are the people who contribute the content. The call for session proposals is now closed – view session ideas at
