Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform for promoting women scientists and the science they do. The 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.

Female scientists from around the South West will be gathering to give talks on anything from ‘algae’ to ‘yogurt’ with props and interactive elements to make learning fun! 

The call for speakers to take part is now open. 

Full details are available on the Soapbox Science web page where you can apply online or download an application form. The deadline for applications is 10:00 on 2 March 2020.
