On the afternoon of 12th October, Gia Milinovich will providing 10 ScienceGrrl members, all female scientists or science fans, with three hours of intensive performance training. This workshop will equip them to feel confident, find their voice, express emotion, be comfortable in the spotlight and, overall, be better prepared to speak publicly about themselves and science.

On the evening of 12th October, we’ll be gathering at the Baltic for  our first birthday party.

We would love you to join us for the evening. There will be birthday cake! The Baltic has a great range of bar food if you want to eat. We will be bringingthe new ScienceGrrl merchandise, so bring your pocket money!
