Boy oh boy, oh Wowzers Trousers, Oh E=MC2, do we have an event for you!
Our April event is themed "relativity". Whether this means to you warring parents, the passage of time, or the relativeness of things, you can be sure our two invited speakers have a couple of interesting things to say about it. (This even will be hosted by Claire, Jenna, and Sarah.)
