Are you a woman in science? Want to share your passion for your work with the public? Why not apply to become one of our 2017 Soapbox Science speakers?
We have 17 events going on next year, in the UK, Canada, Australia, Italy, Ireland and Germany. Our speakers are PhD students, lecturers, readers, professors, engineers, and scientists working in the industry.
Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform for promoting women scientists and the science they do. Our events transform public areas into an arena for public learning and scientific debate; they follow the format of London Hyde Park’s Speaker’s Corner, which is historically an arena for public debate. With Soapbox Science, we want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy, learn from, heckle, question, probe, interact with and be inspired by some of our leading scientists. No middle man, no powerpoint slide, no amphitheater – just remarkable women in science who are there to amaze you with their latest discoveries, and to answer the science questions you have been burning to ask.
To apply, just fill the form from the Soapbox Science website – http://soapboxscience.org/
The deadline for applications is Friday 24th February 2017.
