Soapbox Science call for speakers

Soapbox Science is an annual public science communication event that brings cutting-edge science to the public, in an accessible, fun, free and un-intimidating way. Unlike other science events, a ‘Soapbox’ audience will not have necessarily planned to come and learn about science – rather, they happen across a bunch of world-class scientists as they stroll down the streets!

Soapbox Science runs for 3 hours over an afternoon in the summer. The event is divided into one-hour sessions, with 4 to 5 speakers per session. Speakers stand on custom made “Soapbox Science” soapboxes, arranged in a semi-circle, facing slightly inwards, to facilitate the crowds’ movements.

Dates and cities:

London event: 30th May

Bristol event: 7th June

Exeter event: 13th June

Swansea event: 6th June
