    Welcome to She Talks Science at Murray Edwards College! 

    We are excited to share our resources, events and blog posts with you. 


    Below you will find downloadable academic resources, which will enable you to explore particular topics within biology, chemistry and physics in depth. They have been developed by senior graduate students at the University of Cambridge and relate to their respective fields of research. The resources are designed to provide students considering a degree in science, the opportunity to explore their subject beyond the curriculum. You can work through these resources independently.


    We are running our third Murray Edwards She Talks Science webinar series between April and July 2021. The webinars are for students in Year 12 who identify as female and who are strongly considering study a STEMM subject at university. They will take place via Zoom. If you would like to participate in any of the webinars, please complete this form.

    If you have any queries about the webinar series, please email Bethan Wallace.
