Girl Geek Tea Party #31: Show and Tell

MadLab, Edge Street, Manchester
Sunday 26th May 2013, 2-4pm

Do you have a passion for technology? What gadget could you not live without? What wonder of science do you think the world should know about? Come to the next Manchester Girl Geek Tea Party and share your knowledge with girls (and guys) who want to know more.

Amy explains why we need to solder to make circuits work.

We’re having another of our famous Girl Geek Show and Tell tea parties at MadLab, and you’re invited to come along, learn something new and teach us about the things you find fascinating. Science, engineering, technology, maths, or anything geeky – wherever your interest lies, you’re welcome to talk for 10-15 minutes (or less if you’d rather) on a subject of your choice.

If you don’t have anything to share then just come along for the talks, a cup of tea and some cake. Feel free to bring some homemade cakes if you want to share the love, too. There’ll be a relaxed atmosphere where you can share your thoughts and ideas with like minded ladies. If you’re new and just want to learn more, then come to listen and meet some great people.

Tickets
This event is free, including tea and cakes/biscuits – although donations to our lovely hosts MadLab are very welcome. Get your ticket(s) via Eventbrite here.

What To Bring

  • A short talk/presentation (optional) plus laptop/slides if needed (remember it’s only 10-15 minutes!)
  • Your favourite mug
  • Your delicious baked goods, if you’re in a baking mood
  • Your friends, sisters, mums, cousins, daughters, colleagues, etc who might be interested in joining us!

On the day the first 15 minutes will be set aside for tea, biscuits & booking your time slot. There’ll be a list of slots available when you arrive and we’ll allocate them on a first come first serve basis. As always, non-girl geeks are welcome, especially if they come along with a girl. We look forward to seeing you there!

Tickets are available from mancggtp31.eventbrite.com.

Tea Party #15 – Show & Tell, 26th June 2011

Girl Geek Tea Party

The next Girl Geek Tea Party in Manchester will be on Sunday 26th June at Madlab from 2-4pm, and will be a geeky Show & Tell.

Anyone is welcome to come and talk for a short time (10-20 minutes) about anything you think is interesting, or show us something cool related to science, technology or engineering. There’s no need to prepare anything, and you’re welcome to just come and watch – however, impromptu talks are welcome, as well!

Our very own maths geek Katie Steckles will do a short session involving some nice mathematical objects which can be made out of paper, which will be hands-on for everyone!

The event is free and there will be tea and biscuits, and we encourage you to bring & share your favourite biscuits, cakes, and other snacks! It will be a fun, informal chance to meet and socialise with other girl geeks, practise ‘public’ speaking in a friendly environment, as well as a chance to see some interesting talks.

We will have a laptop, projector and speakers, so all you need to bring is a presentation on your laptop or USB drive, your favourite mug, and some snacks to share!
