Hello and welcome to ScienceGrrl Essex!

We are a young and growing group of women with a desire to encourage and promote the ScienceGrrl agenda. We have been active since 2015 and are always looking to welcome anyone with an interest in supporting women in STEM to get in touch and join our growing network.

Becoming a ScienceGrrl

We believe it’s never too early (or late) to be a Science Grrl. If you’re 16 and over and in search of a mentor, have a desire to take on a mentee, have skills to offer, knowledge to share or just looking for a support network, then Science Grrl is the place for you.

You can join here. To find out what ScienceGrrl is doing nationally follow us on twitter and facebook.

What we do in Essex?

We aim to have a group meeting once every quarter with our final meeting being a social usually in December. We also aim to plan and support three events a year, one of which is usually a Science fair.
