About Us

Once upon a time, there were eight fresh-faced undergraduates at the University of Warwick. They bonded through their love of science, dancing and a bright highlighter-green drink called Eliminator. One night, when all three magic ingredients came together, the infamous pipette dance was born…

Flash forward three years; their repertoire of science-themed dance moves had grown and been shared across the world, albeit to slightly bemused strangers. They have since all graduated, supposedly ‘grown up’  and remained great friends as together they weaved their way into (sometimes out and back in again) the daunting world of STEM. And so, during a weekend getaway together, when conversations kept coming back to the importance of science communication and female representation, and the possibility of sharing their experiences as young women in science to a wider audience, this very blog was born, and there was only one name fit for the job…

So here we are, the eight Dancing Pipettes. We hope you enjoy our ramblings, experiences, stories, and observations… they won’t all be science, we all love food and travel far too much to keep it to just that! But they will all be told by scientists, and in that, we hope to prove that scientists can be so much more than crazy old men in lab coats.
