Wat is Soapbox Science?

Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform for promoting women and non-binary scientists and the science they do. Our events around the world transform public areas into an arena for public learning and scientific 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 middleman, no PowerPoint slide, no amphitheatre – just remarkable women and non-binary people in science who are there to amaze with their latest discoveries, and to answer the science questions the public have been burning to ask.

Why should you apply to be a Soapbox Science speaker?

  • Help to  improve the visibility of women and non-binary people in science
  • Make valuable connections with other scientists
  • Engage with people who might not otherwise encounter science
  • Publicise your work through blogs and other media opportunities
  • Training at our bespoke Soapbox Science workshop
