Back by popular demand! We’re looking for all the budding Astronettes, Star-lettes and Cosmic Girls to come and join us for our ‘Girls Night Out (under the stars) event on Saturday 19th October starting 7pm.
Astronomy and Physics aren’t subjects which attract a lot of women so we want to tackle this and make it more accessible. We want girls to enjoy astronomy as a career or a hobby and banish any fear of geekery that one might have!
The evening is an opportunity for women and girls of all ages to come and have fun with astronomy and learn more about the night sky.
Evening activities may include:
• Meet our female scientific colleagues from the Astrophysics group and the wider University.
• Professor Sarah Bridle will be giving a talk on Seeing the Invisible: Observing the Dark Side of the Universe.
• Learn how to use a telescope and discover more about the night sky.
• Enjoy tea and cupcake decorating.
• Learn how to solder a flashing LED badge
So go on treat yourself, your mates, your sisters and your daughters to a girls night out with a difference.
NB please wrap up warm for the event
