Soapbox Science enters its 7th year in 2017, and promises to bring a summer of excitement, fun, and fantastic science. This year we are growing and expanding to be bigger and better than before, with 15 events organised around the UK and beyond. This includes our first German event in Berlin and our first North American event in Toronto. Our original plans also included bringing Soapbox Science to Palermo, Italy, but due to unforeseen circumstances, this event had to be postponed to a later date. On top of this, Soapbox Science is exploring new avenues with four Art & Science events to take place in art festivals around the UK; these new events are also listed below.
