Soapbox Science Exeter

Safi invited me to take part in the inaugural Soapbox event in Exeter, back in 2015. As challenging as it was to talk about my work in the high street with no safety net, I loved the concept and the experience, and I have been involved since.” – Ana Neves

If you’d like to see what Soapbox Science looks like in action, you can have a look at our Soapbox Science 2016 video2017 video and photos from our 2015 and 2016 events.

“Safi, Isabel and myself are the co-organisers, but our work wouldn’t be possible without the precious help of Kitty, especially in the comms, and of Miriam, who coordinates the volunteers and gathers data about the event and attendance on the day.” – Ana Neves




We couldn’t run the Soapbox Science Exeter event without the kind contribution of The University of Exeter
