We meet once a month at various places around the region, often in Birmingham city centre. During the summer months we host a family picnic day, featuring the ‘Great BrumSciComm Bake Off’.

It is not unusual for people to try out new demonstrations, seek career advice or find themselves planning work with each other. We get people who aren’t even scientists; so no excuse. There is no guest speaker and we like it informal.

We turned 4 in July, and keeping with our tradition, we’re having a family picnic. Join us on Saturday 18th August, 12:00 till 18:00, at the band stand in Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham. If you’re looking for the bandstand, it’s towards the top of the hill, past the crazy golf and near the toilets. Just look for the giant bubbles. Everyone is welcome and feel free to bring your entry for the #GreatBrumSciCommBakeOff.

Ooo, dates for next year already? Friday 11th January 2019. We’re inviting science teachers from all over to join us as we hit the ASE Conference programme! “We’re gonna need a bigger boat.”

Definitely a sociable bunch.
