Soapbox Science

Are you curious about clouds? Feeling mystified about uranium? Want to find out how art and science can work together? Or simply want to know what makes scientists tick? Top women scientists will be taking to their soapboxes alongside artists to share their passion for science and answer some of its most mysterious questions. They have been working together to explore a range of scientific topics in exciting new ways, from sculpture about ice crystals to performance about medicine. Join us for an afternoon or fun, informal and hands on science!

Soapbox Science is grass-roots science outreach organisation that brings cutting edge research to the public whilst also promoting the visibility of women in science. We place inspirational speakers on soapboxes and encourage them to engage in and start conversations with passers-by about their work.
