We are the University of Birmingham’s only science communication society. Every year, we write, edit, and publish the science magazine Science and Technology News and Views (SATNAV). We cater to all interests within science, from psychology to quantum physics!
SATNAV is a great opportunity for students get experience in a range of science communication roles and develop their skills, whether they’re interested in editing, writing, layout, art/photography, or the behind-the-scenes of publication.
The committee acts as an editorial board, while members submit content. Committee editors provide feedback and editing on all submissions, so don’t be afraid to submit even if you don’t have experience with scientific writing! Our aim is to publish informative, factual, and interesting magazines at the end of the Autumn and Spring semesters.

As part of a rebranding for SATNAV magazine and society towards a more diverse science communication and journalism society, this winter we hosted the University of Birmingham's first ever careers events for science communicators.
This fortnight, Futures in SciComm, was composed of four virtual events; two panels with science communicators working in different fields, a workshop with a representative from the University of Birmingham Press Office, and an interview with Mićo Tatalović, News Editor for Research.
