Description: is a not-for-profit group which organises networking events, talks and hands-on workshops for women and girls with an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
While our events are aimed at girls and women of all ages, we are happy to welcome boys and men, especially if they come with a girl geek. Please note that children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

For this month’s tea party, we’ll be playing tabletop games! Strategy games, dice games, board games, and card games – from the fantastical to the wordy to the mathematical, and every shade of geeky in between. We’ll have a selection of board games for you to play, but you’re also welcome to bring your own that you’d like to share!

We’ll also have a short intro from game theory expert Sara Krenicky, who’s going to talk about game theory and how mathematics can be used to give yourself the advantage…

As always, there’ll be tea and cakes, and if you feel in a baking mood we’d love you to bring anything you’ve made. Maybe some dice-shaped mini cakes, or Scrabble tile biscuits!

Hope to see you there – and bring your friends!
