Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform for promoting women scientists and the science they do.
Transforming 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. With Soapbox Science, 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.
We love this project and were excited to produce a short film capturing the excitement, intrigue and fun taking place on a sunny afternoon in Manchester Piccadilly gardens.
