Some of you may know of ScienceGrrl- a grassroots organisation which aims to show that science is for EVERYONE! We do this in a myriad of ways; by being positive role models, by increasing opportunities for young people to engage with science, myth-busting and awareness raising.
There are a number of local chapters of Science Grrl, and hurrah, we have one in Preston! Local chapters link likeminded people with the aim of delivering local initiatives that address issues around gender equality in science, and generally getting more people to love, appreciate and enjoy science.
You don’t have to be female, or a scientist to come along to a local meeting. The next Preston meet-up is planned for Wed 18th September, from 5-7pm, in Forum Bar in the centre of Preston. We’ve no real fixed agenda, it’s just a chance to meet up, talk through some ideas and see what happens.
If you’d like to come along you can tweet Jo @microjology or just show up.
