Soapbox Science
Soapbox Science is coming to Oxford for the first time on June 18th 2016! If you’re interested in anything from nuclear fuel to brushing your teeth, or finding out what a teabag can tell you about soil, then Oxford’s Soapbox Science is the event for you!

We’ll be putting on a relaxed, informative and fun event which will bring cutting-edge science to Oxford town centre. We’ll be promoting some incredible female scientists and the work they do, and hopefully inspiring the next generation of female scientists. Our event will transform Cornmarket Street into an arena for public learning and scientific debate; hear our scientists talk about what fascinates them, and why they think they have the most fantastic job in the world!

We want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy, learn from, question, probe, interact with and be inspired by some of our leading scientists. No middle man, no lectures, no amphitheatre – just remarkable women in science who will amaze you with their latest discoveries, and answer the science questions you have been burning to ask.
