Soapbox Science 2019 - Cape Town Volunteer registration form
Are you passionate about science and love talking to people about it? Do you want to help raise awareness about gender equality in science careers? Soapbox Science Cape Town is looking for volunteers to help out at the event.

The event will take place at the V&A ( on the 28th of September 2019 and will run roughly between 11:00 to 4:00 pm. More details about the event and the project are available at this link:

Soapbox Science is not just about the speakers. Without a supportive team of committed, enthusiastic people, a Soapbox event simply cannot happen. Each event relies on an animated team of up to 20 volunteers. Volunteers play a crucial role in rounding up the public, chatting to them informally about science, supporting the speakers by managing props and helping to calm any pre-box nerves (even then most experienced speakers get a bit jittery!). But perhaps the most important role of the volunteers is gathering data so we can effectively monitor the success of the event: volunteers carry out the bulk of our streamlined evaluation process, through interviews, observations and counting footfall.

We ask you to commit to attending the event. You’ll need to turn up roughly 1 hour before the event starts (roughly 10:00 am) for a briefing and training. You’ll need to stay until up to an hour after the event ends, to help clear up (roughly 4:00 pm).

We’ll send you a volunteers information pack before hand, with the contact details of the local organisers, and details on what role you’ve been allocated and at what time.

Join us for an afternoon of fun, informal and inspiring science and help challenge ideas about who can be a scientist!
