Soapbox Science 2018 Windsor

Soapbox Science is coming to Windsor, Ontario for the first time ever! On Saturday, May 12th from 11am-2pm, women from STEMM will be sharing their passion and love for science with the public! We are hosting experts of biology, biochemistry, engineering, physics, computer science, artificial intelligence and medicine. Windsor researchers love sharing their work with the public at all different kinds of events! As a border city in the southernmost area of Ontario, we are hoping we can entertain the Windsorites as well as our Detroit neighbours with the wonderful research taking place in our city!
