Soapbox Science Plymouth

Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform for promoting women scientists and the science they do. The yearly event aims to transform public areas into an arena for learning and scientific debate with the aim to encourage women in science and also challenge perceptions of who a scientist is. For 2021, Soapbox Science Plymouth took place virtually, opening the event up to an even wider audience.

Female scientists from around the South West gave talks on anything from ‘robots to rockpools’ with props and an online live interactive session to make learning fun!
