Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform for promoting women scientists and the science they do. The 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.
Soapbox Science 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.
In 2015 The British Society of Soil Science sponsored Dr Jack Hannam, Dr Emilia Urbanek and Jasmine Black to participate in the programme.
The call for 2016 participants is now open. You may wish to look at this short promotional video of the 2015 event in London. See if you can spot Dr Jack Hannam and her travelling UK soil map!
