2013 Science Communication Conference – why attend?
Bookings are open for the 2013 Science Communication Conference on 16 and 17th May at Kings Place, London.
The Science Communication Conference is the annual event that brings together the most diverse range of science communicators to meet each other, get new skills and discuss the biggest issues in public engagement.
The Conference contains a real mixture of sessions including inspiring plenary sessions and you choose the parallel sessions that you think are most relevant for you. Our science education-themed sessions include:
• The challenges of measuring informal science learning – examining the key challenges for the sector and its value to science education
• Young (science) apprentice – exploring inspiring case studies and discussing what more can be done to encourage young people into learning, science and cultural careers
• Citizen science – Exploring how to measure the success of citizen science
And many more! Take a look at the programme and discover the rest of the sessions that the Conference has to offer you.

What delegates said in 2012:
“All the sessions and talks I went to were great - very interesting and inspirational.”
“It has provided an opportunity to discuss with others in the field who I may not otherwise get to talk with about what they do and how we could collaborate. It is also nice to get away from the desk and be enthused by others and reminded why we do this!”
“I think this conference has been excellent in providing an introduction to the field, raising the awareness of broader issues and facilitating networking.”
