Soapbox Science 2019

soapbox science

Soapbox Science is returning to Bristol Shopping Quarter on  Saturday 13 July for another day of free scientific discovery!

Between 12pm – 3pm that day, Broadmead will be transformed into a platform for scientific discussion and debate. Come along and meet real scientists in your community and listen to the cutting edge research they are working on; from camouflage in animals to growing red blood cells in the lab. Twelve women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) will be informally discussing their research across the three hours. Join in the fun by asking them questions and taking part in activities, practical demonstrations and debates.
