Soapbox Science 2015


Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform for promoting women scientists and the science they do. London’s Southbank will be transformed into a hub of scientific learning and discussion, as some of the UK’s leading female scientists take to their soapboxes to showcase science to the general public.

2015 saw strong competition among speakers to appear at this event with over 35 applications received. One of STEMNET’s very own STEM Ambassadors, Dr. Joanna Barstow (University of Oxford) was one of the lucky winners and is set to get up on her soapbox to discuss “Finding Earth Mark Two: habitable worlds and how to search for them”.
