Delegate List closes TOMORROW at 11pm, Wednesday 9th September
We are delighted to invite you to The 2015 ASDC National Conference. This year's conference will be held in the wonderful At-Bristol Science Centre on Thursday 24th of September, with the AGM and Conference Dinner the day before on Wednesday 23rd of September.
This lively one-day national conference will bring together professionals from the UK's leading Science and Discovery Centres, Science Museums, Natural History and Environmental organisations as well as Public Engagement organisations and science-based visitor attractions.
The Royal Society of Chemistry Outreach Fund provides financial support to individuals and organisations in order to enable them to run chemistry-based events and activities for public audiences. Through the fund, they can support their members, and other advocates, to engage with different audiences, and provide people with an entry point into the chemical sciences.
The British Science Association vision is to make science a fundamental part of culture and society – they recognise that they can’t achieve this alone and aim to create a community of people who are equipped and motivated to achieve this too. So they are finding out what science communication means today, and what people like you, who work to engage the public with science really need.
If you work as a science communicator, filmmaker, artist, or in any way engage with the public about science, they’d love to hear your views.
The call for session proposals for the 2016 Ecsite Annual Conference is now open. The conference will be taking place in Graz, Austria, on 9-11 June 2016.
The majority of the conference’s unique programme comes from practitioners sharing and discussing experiences, research, trends and visions. The call for session proposals is open to all: team up with colleagues from around the globe and submit a session idea! A rich variety of formats is encouraged, from plenary talks to highly interactive workshops.
Presented by the IOP and GEO, this conference aims to bring together practitioners and academics to discuss the important issue of gender and education.
As you may be aware, the Institute has done a lot of work on gender issues in STEM subjects. The factors determining student choices are connected to much broader issues and our most recent project Opening Doors, funded by the GEO, had no such subject emphasis and instead focussed on whole school culture.
UWE's Science Communication (SCU) Masterclass is an intensive, short course created to provide professional development in science communication. The masterclass draws on the existing expertise of the team that delivers UWE's popular and practical MSc in Science Communication.
The next SCU Masterclass takes place 9-12 November 2015 at At-Bristol. Registration is now open.
At-Bristol Science Centre turned 15 this summer! To celebrate, they made a short film about what they do and why more than 4 million people have visited since they opened. They asked visitors, teachers, community leaders, their staff and even the Bristol Mayor George Ferguson why they love At-Bristol.
