Soapbox Science 2019 Accra

On the 25th of May 2019, the first edition  of Soapbox Science Accra in Ghana will take place. The organising team is very passionate about spreading science while breaking boundaries and stereotypes in Science and in Life. Join us for a day of fun and informal science as amazing women scientists take to the streets to share their work!

The event’s mission is to help eliminate gender inequality in science by raising the profile, and challenging the public’s view, of women in science. 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

Volunteer with Soapbox Science Accra

Are you passionate about science and love talking to people about it? Do you want to help raise awareness about gender equality in science careers? Soapbox Science Accra is looking for volunteers to help out at their event on 25th May 2019!

Soapbox Science is not just about the speakers. Without a supportive team of committed, enthusiastic people, a Soapbox event simply cannot happen. Each event relies on an animated team of up to 20 volunteers.

Join us for an afternoon of fun, informal and inspiring science and help challenge ideas about who can be a scientist!
