Strange Bedfellows > Girl Geeks vs Footy Fanatics

Thursday 26 September 2019 > 6PM-7.30PM


Kick off the Grand Final long weekend with some sophisticated, cultured chit chat. 

Just kidding, let’s head to Good Love.

And answer our burning question: Who says geeks and footy don’t mix? Because not us. In fact, we’re so certain geeks and footy DO mix that we can make a whole event about it. Don’t believe that?

Let our experts Hannah O’Brien from Girl Geek Academy and Andy Bellairs from the National Sports Museum at the MCG convince you!
The evening will go something like this: each of our experts will present their topics for 20 minutes only. Then it’s over to you. Ask a question, any question. Only catch is both speakers have to answer the same question. “Is it possible to program a perfect game strategy?”  (Prizes for the best question.)

Girl geeks and footy fanatics; strange bedfellows or best buds?
