Swansea will be hosting their third Soapbox Science event on Saturday 10th September 2016.
Our soapboxes will be moved inland from the beach to Swansea’s shopping area in the city centre, thereby forming a bridgehead to the British Science ‘Fringe’ Festival.
The city will be buzzing with shoppers, families, tourists and other city dwellers – we aim to stop them in their tracks with women at the forefront of science and technology from all over Wales and beyond talking about their research!
The event’s mission is to raise the profile, and challenge the public’s view, of women in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine (STEMM). If you’d like to see what Soapbox Science looks like in action in Swansea, have a look at the Soapbox Science Swansea 2015 video.
