Soapbox Science
-

Join some of the University of Aberdeen's leading scientists as they take to their soapboxes to showcase science to the general public at the Aberdeen Mela

Soapbox Science is a brilliant novel public outreach platform for promoting women scientists and the science they do. It brings science to the most unlikely places such as shopping malls, parks and streets.

This means anyone can access leading scientists by engaging with them directly. No middle man, no PowerPoint slides and no lecture hall.  Just remarkable women in science standing on a soapbox to amaze you with their latest discoveries and answer all the science questions you have been burning to ask.

Join researchers from the University of Aberdeen as they showcase their research at the Aberdeen Mela, Aberdeen's celebration of multicultualism on 21 August.
