Soapbox Science

Motor Neurone Disease, Menopause and nutrition are just some of the subjects being covered by women scientists who are taking over Speakers’ Corner in Nottingham to share their knowledge with a series of exciting talks and debate.

Women academics from the University of Nottingham and Nottingham Trent University are bringing Soapbox Science back to Speakers’ Corner, King's Street, Nottingham on Saturday 13th July from 11am to  2pm.

The speakers will engage the public in ground-breaking research, sharing their experience and expertise on a range of topics and challenge traditional science gender stereotypes.

Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform promoting women scientists and the science they do. The events started in London in 2011 and have since spread globally to showcase 2,500 scientists who have presented to over 300,000 attendees and counting! When Soapbox Science arrives, it transforms the venue into an arena for public learning and scientific debate. Each event showcases 12 inspirational women speakers from the world of science, technology, engineering, medicine, and maths.
