Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform for promoting women and non-binary 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 and non-binary scientists, and also challenge perceptions of who a scientist is.
Soapbox Science returns to the Royal William Yard on Sunday 2 April and the call for speakers is now open. The deadline for applications is Tuesday 28 February and full details are available on the Soapbox Science website.
