Joined in November to replace an outgoing administrator, part of a fluid team of 4 whose joint effort creates the Brighton Science Festival. My work covered all facets of the Festival, from production on the events themselves to Marketing, Social Media Management, Press Management, as well as managing a team of 79 volunteers single handedly. Personal highlights include managing the Bright Sparks event of over 3500 visitors, including the team of volunteers I put in place.
I loved this opportunity and seeing children engaging in Science and, seeing thway in which children engaged in each of the shows and stalls at the two week festival whetted my appetite and made me realise this work, where children are engaged in learning, whether it be visual, scientific or in some cases theatrical, is what I want to promote.
Also, there were lots of explosions, and they are fun.
