Main page content

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.
