ScienceGrrl’s Brum chapter seeks new recruits for BSF event

The Birmingham chapter of ScienceGrrl are recruiting women scientists and engineers for the British Science Festival event, ‘I’m a ScienceGrrl, Talk to Me’.

It will take place around Birmingham Central Library, on Saturday 6th September 10:00 till 16:00 and is described briefly below.

This is a great opportunity for women role models to share, with a family audience, their passion for why they work in science and engineering,
