Soapbox Science returns to Cardiff in 2018 for another day of excitement and discovery. At this fantastic event we have twelve female presenters lined up who will quite literally be stood on top of wooden boxes and speaking with the public about their research. Throughout the day we hope to be able to both bring science to the public in a fun and informative way, and also raise the profile of women in STEM.
If this sounds like something you’d like to be involved in then you can apply with this form. If so, then we ask that you commit to attending the event. You’ll need to turn up 1 hour before the event starts for a briefing and training. You’ll need to stay until up to an hour after the event ends, to help clear up. There will be lunch provided at 12pm before the event starts, refreshments throughout the day, and also a buffet in the evening that all speakers and volunteers are encouraged to attend.
We’ll also send you a volunteers' information pack before hand, with the contact details of your local organisers, and details on what role you’ve been allocated and at what time.
So come join us for an afternoon of fun, informal and inspiring science, and help challenge ideas about who can be a scientist!
