Make a date with science calendar
STAFF and students from Bristol University are joining famous faces in a new calendar which aims to excite young women about science.
The calendar, entitled ScienceGrrl 2013, features Tomorrow's World presenter Kate Bellingham, pictured, and Prof Dame Nancy Rothwell among 13 powerful images showcasing the real face of female scientists.
Other famous faces include Dr James Logan, entomologist and presenter of Channel 4's Embarrassing Bodies, who is shown working alongside female colleagues, while BBC Horizon presenters Dallas Campbell, Dr Kevin Fong and Dr Adam Rutherford display portraits of female scientists who have inspired their careers.
It aims to raise money for projects which break down gender stereotypes and encourage young women and girls to see science as an exciting career choice.

The calendar has been part-funded by the Cabot Institute and The Systems Centre at Bristol University and features science and engineering communicators Ellie Cosgrave, Suzi Gage and Dr Tamsin Edwards.
They are part of ScienceGrrl, a diverse group of scientists led by Dr Heather Williams, formed after the European Commission launched its "Science: It's a girl thing" campaign which featured a controversial teaser video depicting women as models and not showing any real science. Angered by this stereotypical approach, ScienceGrrl decided to create the calendar to give a fairer representation of women in science and to showcase the diversity and range of career opportunities available.
The calendar costs £12 and is available via www.sciencegrrl.co.uk.
