The award provides the opportunity to further develop the winner's science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) communication skills, their networks, and their awareness of the industry, with support from teams at the Science Museum Group and the BIG STEM Communicators Network.
The winner will also develop and deliver a new project or event for the Science and Industry Museum holiday programme (between 19 October and 3 November 2019 in Manchester), showcasing best practice in the field of STEM communication.
