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 nextManchester Girl Geeks Tea Party and share your knowledge with girls (and guys) who want to know more. We’re having a Girl Geek “Show and Tell” and you’re invited to come along, learn something new and teach us about the things you find fascinating.

Science, Engineering or Technology – wherever your interest lies, you’re welcome to talk for up to ten 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 technology, 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 to technology and just want to learn more, then come to listen and meet some great people.

This event is free and we will provice some tea & biscuits, but we would like to point out that our venue – MadLab – appreciates donations. Look out for the donation cat :)

What to bring along?

  • A short talk or presentation
  • A laptop could be useful with working wifi, we might have some web based show-and-tells
  • Your favourite mug
  • Your favourite biscuits, cupcakes, 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.
  • 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.

    The rules: no female, no entry

    >Girl Geek events are for the ladies! But it doesn’t mean that men can’t attend, they just have to come as the guest of a female.

  • If you are male and wish to attend the event then you will need to be invited by a female attending the event.
  • Girls, one date only please! (We want to keep the numbers balanced!)
  • The best way around these rules if you’re a guy who wants to attend? Convince or bribe someone to let you be their date for the dinner.
