Soapbox Science is an annual public science communication event that transforms public areas into an arena for public learning and scientific debate. The event follows 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. At Soapbox Science, there is no middle man, no powerpoint slide, no amphitheater – there are just remarkable scientists who are there to amaze you with their latest discoveries, and to answer the science questions you have been burning to ask. Look out for bat simulators, fake breasts or giant pictures of volcanoes. Or simply hear them talk about what fascinates them, and why they think they have the most fantastic job in the world!
Call for Speakers is open until 22nd February 2015 and it would be great if BSSS members (especially female) were able to take part during International Year of Soils.
There are planned events in London, Belfast, Glasgow, Exeter, Bristol, Swansea and Newcastle
