Manchester Histories Festival: Stories of Women in Science


Jmhflogo20163-5cm300dpirgboin Manchester Girl Geeks and guests from the University of Manchester’s Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine, for a repeat of our walking tour of Manchester’s city centre featuring stories of Manchester’s scientific women. As part of Manchster Histories Festival, learn about the contributions women have made to science in Manchester and around the world, and hear the stories of well-known (and less well-known) science heroes from Manchester.
Join us on a journey around the city centre for the afternoon – and stick around afterwards for a cup of tea and some cake. We’ll be leaving from the Manchester Art Gallery (just inside the foyer) at 2pm, and walking through town and down towards the university, finishing at 4pm, when you’ll be able to get a drink and we’ll share some cakes in a nearby cafe.
PLEASE NOTE: if you came to our earlier Walking Tour event in March, this will be basically the same talks on roughly the same route – but if you know anyone else you think would enjoy it, please send them the details!
