Soapbox Science is an annual event at venues around the world, where a dozen women talk about their scientific research to the public to raise the awareness of women in science.

Are you a woman, non-binary or genderqueer person who works in science and who is passionate about your research? Are you eager to talk to the wider public about your work in a fun, informal setting?  If so, then Soapbox Science needs YOU! They are looking for scientists in all areas of STEMM, from PhD students to Professors, and from entry-level researchers to entrepreneurs, to take part in this grassroots science outreach project.

The events involve being present in public areas to talk directly to the public about your science. No middle man, no PowerPoint slide, no amphitheatre – just remarkable scientists who are there to amaze with their latest discoveries, and to answer the science questions the public have been burning to ask.

You'll receive training, have the opportunity to meet like-minded scientists, and be part of the conversation around equality in science.

COVID-19 information: Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, some events may move to an online format or cancel if they are unable to run live. Local Organisers will keep the selected speakers updated, should plans change.

 

Events in the UK include in Brighton (May/June 2022), Leicester (TBC), London (28 May 2022), Milton Keynes (June/July 2022), Nottingham (TBC) and some others further afield. You can choose which to take part in.
