The Alimentarium is the 1st food-themed museum in the world. And so much more! It is also a unique centre of expertise and offers unforgettable activities. There is something magical about the Alimentarium. It has so many stories to tell, to so many different audiences (children, adults, teachers, businesses, in Switzerland and around the world).
Big Bang Science Communication takes care ot the Alimentarium's presence on social:
- We create and publish the content
- Lovingly nurture and manage the online communities
- Organize contests and quizzes, and other engaging activities
- We also manage the media budget
We help the Alimentarium shine on the Worldwide Internets, and this makes us very happy!
The Savanturiers is an educational programme by the Centre de Recherche Interdiciplinaire (Interdisciplinary Research Center) aiming to use same methods used in research, with the same rigour, to teach science to children.
For them, we produce educational and didactic videos, such as this one:

Nestlé Research Center
Scientific papers can be difficult to understand for non-specialists. One picture often tells more than a thousand words: this is why we have teamed up with our Belgian friends at Somersault 18:24 to create the most beautiful visual abstracts for the Nestlé Research Center, thus allowing non-scientific employees to engage with the research of their scientific colleagues.
The CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique) often teams up with bloggers and youtubers. This was the case for the moderation of the CNRS Forum conference for instance, as well as for collaborations on their YouTube channel: Zestes de Sciences.
Big Bang Science helps the CNRS get in relation with these content creators.
Book "Moi, parasite" by Pierre Kerner
Thanks to Big Bang Science, even popular books are peer-reviewed :)
We made the scientific proof-reading possible, through a partnership with Sophie, PhD in evolutionary biology.
International Committee of the Red Cross
What is the point of an applied science such as medicine if it cannot be applied?
In 2016 and 1027, we worked on the "Health Care in Danger" campaign for the International Committee of the Red Cross. We teamed up with Benoit Yin to produce this amazing video.

Banque Cantonale de Fribourg
We wrote the content for the new website of the Banque Cantonale de Fribourg.
The goal was to describe the offers and explain the banking environment in simple words, exactly as we do in science popularization endeavours, with a special attention on search engine optimization (SEO).
After Alan was a member of the 2016 jury for the Swiss semi-finals, Big Bang Science was Famelab France's communication and media partner for 2017, on behalf of the British Council in Paris.
We currently managing the comms of the 2018 edition.
A Planet of Viruses
In the English speaking world, Carl Zimmer is a - if not THE - superstar of science journalism. And guess who translated his famous book A Planet of Viruses into French? Yes. We did! Since March 11, 2016, you can find it on the bookshelves of French bookshops as « Planète de virus ».
You cannot even begin to imagine how proud we are about this!
If you haven't read it already, what are you still doing there? Go and buy it at once*. In English or in French. For once, the translation is as good as the original.
* From March 11, 2016 on, that is.
P.S.: If you're interested, this opportunity has given rise to an interview of the author by his translators, in English, on Podcast Science:
