BIG’s ‘Little’ event with bursaries

The Little Event is BIG’s one-day training session for people who are relatively early in their STEM communication career, whether they work in a science centre or museum, volunteer for a festival, are involved in university outreach, or do anything else to engage people with sciences.

It’s coming to Thinktank Science Museum, Birmingham, on Thursday 24th January 2019, from 10 till 4:30, and will be followed by a BIG #BrumSciComm social too.

It’s a lot like the BIG Event, but a bit smaller, and all crammed into one busy day. There will be several sessions, each focusing on developing a different skill, including sessions on Networking, Managing Projects, Presenting, Audience Analysis and Careers.

Each bursary is worth approximately £100 and covers annual BIG membership, registration fees and reasonable expenses. Applying for one of the 10 free places is simple – tell us in no more than 200 words, why you would like the opportunity to come to the Little Event and how you think it will benefit your personal and professional development.

Applications close at 6pm, 5th December, 2019. Applicants will be notified of the outcome the week commencing 17th December, 2019.
