“if you can’t bring the people to the science, take the science to the people”
Hephzi successfully set up Basildon Street Science in 2014 which has seen an exponential growth over the years. Whether you are looking to start a festival or bring new flavour to your event, Hephzi brings her experience from working with multiple organisations, local authority, freelancers and artists to create inclusive and accessible events for the whole community.
Here’s what some of our exhibitors had to say,
“You’ve done a fabulous job again in delivering street science to Basildon! For the third year running, I was engaging solidly from 10 till 4 with folks of all ages, brilliant. What is SO important is that many of the visitors to our stalls were just out for a day’s shopping, but they were unwittingly drawn into what we were all doing and loved it. There are many science engagement events around the country (including the two I’m involved with in Cambridge, Big Biology Day and Cambridge Science Festival). These tend to attract an audience who are already “opted in” to science. The beauty of Basildon is it’s reaching a wider audience who would not ordinarily have engaged with such things. You’ve created a model which is transferable, and I hope it will be. My pitch to lots of the visitors was “If you’ve enjoyed today and want more then come to BBD in Cambridge on Saturday 5th October, only 60 miles and a full day of free, fun biology stuff”. Each year at BBD Cambridge I meet folks I met at Basildon, result!” – Ian Harvey
