Girl’s Night Out! – Jodrell Bank
Jodrell Bank is hosting its next Girls Nights Out in June, previous events have been a huge success!
This is a fantastic opportunity for girls to experience what might be involved in a science and engineering career in a friendly and relaxed environment.
Girls Night Out – Science & Engineering in the SKA
Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre
Saturday 20th June, 7.00 p.m to 10.15 p.m
Tickets – £8.00
Join us for our latest ‘Girls Night Out’ to learn about the most exciting science and engineering project of the future – the Square Kilometre Array, which will create the biggest radio telescope on Planet Earth.
During the evening you will attend a talk by SKA engineer Dr Roshene McCool and be inspired by the science and engineering of the future.
Plus you can test your own skills in a series of activities which include;
· Create your own SKA antenna and help us assemble our very own SKA array in the gardens
· Try your hand at some real electrical engineering and solder an LED badge to wear and take home
· Observe the solstice with our solar telescopes from our café terrace (clouds permitting)
Our female staff (most of whom have degrees in Physics!) will be on hand to give you tips throughout.
Tickets are £8 (and include a cookie and refreshments). This event has been generously supported and subsidised by the Square Kilometre Array Organisation.
Pre booking is required and tickets are available at www.jodrellbank.net or call 01477 571766.« Back To News
