Halifax Local Organising Team

Soapbox Science Halifax

Last summer Halifax welcomed Soapbox Science to Canada’s Ocean Playground for the first time, and with over 700 people attending the event we are back for round two! Our twelve female speakers come from a variety of careers related to science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM). As a group, we are committed to promoting science outreach and minorities in STEMM. Come learn about the amazing wealth of research being conducted by Halifax’s women in STEMM.
