At this month’s Manchester Girl Geek Tea Party, we celebrate our 1 year anniversary with a Christmas-y potluck and a science & technology Show & Tell.

The event will be a geeky potluck Show& Tell – bring nibbles and a geeky 5-10 minutes presentation to share with everyone. Anything goes – Science, Engineering, Technology, Mathematics, a short presentation of your work, your research or any exciting hobbies that make you feel extra special geeky. There may be some Description Logic biscuits, non-alcoholic mulled wine and an authentic Christmas slideshow looking back at the best Girl Geek Tea Party moments of the past year, including cheesy music. Maybe ;)

Don’t worry if you don’t have a presentation – just come along and join us for some geeky fun anyway!

(“A potluck is a gathering of people where each person or group of people contributes a dish of food to be shared among the group.” [Wikipedia])

Who can come along?

Bring along your friends, sisters, mums, daughters, aunties, cousins, and colleagues, anyone who might be interested. Our aim is to make subjects like this accessible to all women whatever their background or experience. If you’d like to come but are of the male variety then you don’t have to worry, men are always welcome at girl geek events. There is one condition – you must be invited by or come along with a lady attending the event.
