Looking for a reason to join us at the BIG Event in Oxford this year? Apart from the chance to spend three days with 150+ good STEM engagement folks?

Apart from the 45+ sessions you can see in the latest draft of the programme at www.big.uk.com/bigevent14 ?

Apart from spending some quality professional development time, taking a peek around Oxford University Natural History, Pitt Rivers and History of Science Museums with others who like to do the same? Ok, well come and hear what Steve has to say then.

We’re terribly pleased to be welcoming Steve Crabtree to join us for our Welcome and Keynote at the BIG Event this year, 23-25 July at Oxford University Museum of Natural History. We do like the sound of him and we’re sure you will too.

Steve took the position of Editor of Horizon at the BBC this year, so he probably knows a thing or two about creating ways to engage folks with current and relevant science. But that’s not all.

He has produced & directed much of the BBC’s Science, Arts and Business programming, and worked across all four TV channels – making programmes such as ‘Child of Our Time’ with Professor Robert Winston, The Culture show, and The Money Programme. In 2008 Steve became a Series Producer on the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition, before returning to the Science department full time to create a BBC2 Engineering series called ‘How to Build…’ Steve then produced BBC4 series ‘Shock & Awe: The Story of Electricity’ and Pain, ‘Pus & Poison: The Search for Modern Medicines’.

But that’s not all.

Steve knows how to paint a submarine. So he must be all right.
