Friends of theGIST Glasgow ScienceGRRL are proud to announce that they will be hosting a Science Ceilidh at the Glasgow Science Centre on Saturday 7th March to celebrate International Women’s Day! The event will include science based ceilidh dances – with names such as Orcadian Strip the Double Helix and the Dashing White Blood Cell. Additional entertainment will be provided in the form of an exclusive Bright Club set (stand-up comedy from scientists and academics) as well as a raffle with some fantastic prizes. Special guest Dr Christine McCartney OBE will also be joining us for the celebration to share her experience in building a successful career in science as a woman.
The event will take place at the Glasgow Science Centre on the 7th of March at 7pm, and it is over 18s only. Tickets (£12 and £14) are available from Glasgow Science Centre’s box office, via phone on 0141 420 5000 or here.
