Event Details


Following on from our successful ‘Show & Tell’ events, Manchester Girl Geeks are hosting a BarCamp – an all-day interactive ‘unconference‘, where the talks are provided by attendees, and the programme isn’t known until the conference is under way! Think of it as a big, all-day Show&Tell!

Typical topics at BarCamps include technology, science, mathematics, or anything else that’s geeky and fun! Share your knowledge, passion and enthusiasm with other like-minded nerdy types. As with all Manchester Girl Geeks events, male attendees are welcome - to make sure we're balanced, it would be great if you could bring along a female friend or girl geek. It's a win/win/win situation, right?

The event is free to attend, and refreshments will be provided. Bring your laptop, tablet, phone or other wi-fi enabled device, and anything you want to share!

Event Details

Girl Geeks BarCamp Manchester will be held on Saturday 16th March 2013, and will run from 10am-5pm. The event will take place across both floors of MadLab, 36/40 Edge Street, in Manchester’s Northern Quarter.

The ground floor talks and toilets are wheelchair accessible, and the venue has free wi-fi and power sockets for your laptops.

We also have some funds available to contribute towards costs for child care and accessibility (e.g. taxis). It won’t be a lot, but we’re hoping to help make the BarCamp as accessible as possible for everyone! You will have to notify us before the event so we can consider you for funding. Please email us for details!


The talks will be scheduled at the start of the BarCamp – just turn up with an idea! We will have a big timetable where you can enter your preferred time slot for your presentation, and the timetable is likely to change throughout the day. The rules for the talks are:

  • The topic can be anything that you think might be interesting to an audience with an interest in science and technology.
  • The slots will be 25 minutes. Shorter talks are ok, too.
  • You can give more than 1 talk on the day.
  • It doesn’t need to be a talk – discussion rounds, hands-on tutorials and spontaneous ad-hoc presentations are actively encouraged!
  • We will have a projector and speakers on both floors, but please bring a laptop if you have slides. Talks without slides are great, too!
