Soapbox Science 2017 Townsville

On August 12th 1-4pm, as part of National Science Week 2017, Townville’s Gregory Street Amphitheatre will welcome leading Queensland female scientists for the first Soapbox event in tropical North Queensland. 12 women who work in Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics or Medicine are bravely stepping out of their comfort zone and onto soapboxes for an entertaining afternoon of scientific debate and discussion. Our aim remains to inspire new generations of women scientists, challenge perception of what a scientist does and looks like, and engage with the public and the wider community. The event is free. If you’d like to see what Soapbox Science looks like in action, have a look at the Soapbox Science 2015 video





We could not organise this event without the contributions of our generous sponsors: the ARC Centre of Excellence in Environmental Decisions
