Do You Organise a Science Festival?
Here is a request for information on science festivals internationally
-- see the e-mail below.
The online survey takes 10-15 minutes. The aim is to share insights
Not sure that what you run counts as a 'festival'? Offer your
information anyway (I am going to describe a 'virtual festival').
The information requested seems easy to recall or look up in a report,
e.g, attendance figures.
Numbers only have to be rough. They are a guide for counterparts.
Questions? Contact Annette Smith of the British Association for the
Advancement of Science -- Annette.Smith at the-ba.net.
