Title: Girl Geek Afternoon Tea
Location: MadLab
Description: Girl Geek Dinner has got a little sister – Girl Geek Afternoon Tea!
Start Time: 14:00
Date: 2010-01-24
End Time: 16:00

Who: Girl Geeks, bring along anyone you like! Your friends, sisters, mums, cousins, daughters, colleagues… who might be interested in doing some techy stuff… Even boys can come if you want to bring them as your date (boys, now is the time to start being extra nice to your favourite girl geek… chocolates might not go down well at this time of year, how about a bunch of brightly coloured LEDs?)

What: As well as the nattering, knitting and cake munching, we’ve got an awesome workshop.

Melanie (of cyberspice.org.uk) will bring along some Arduinos and (quote) “loads of LEDs and other sensors to play with” so we can start building and coding up some fun stuff.

Ladies, this is your chance to get your hands dirty with some open source hardware and put together something cool (I’m thinking crazy Wallace & Gromit style tea temperature measuring machines ;) )! Don’t worry if you’ve never heard of Arduinos and/or if you don’t have mad coding skills – we’ll work in teams so everyone can do / watch / learn as much as they want to.

And, of course – there will be tea & biscuits (we’ll try not to get too many crumbs in our laptops…).

Bring along…?

- YOUR LAPTOP for the Arduino software.

- Your favourite mug

- Your favourite biscuits, tea, coffee (we’ll have the basics, but in case you fancy something slightly more interesting… :)

- Your friends, sisters, mums, cousins, daughters, colleagues… who might be interested in doing some techy stuff

If this sounds good to you, clicketyclick our eventbrite page and sign up (it’s all free of course!).

PS: And what about the boys? Feel free to come along as your girl geek friend’s “date”! :)

Thanks again to Madlab for letting us use their space & giant teapot!
