Soapbox Science Cardiff Volunteer Application Form 2018
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 Cardiff is looking for volunteers to help out at their event on Saturday the 2nd of June 2018, 1pm->4pm, in Cardiff City Centre.

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.

But 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!) as well as handing out Soapbox goodies to lucky audience members! 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.

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!
