Soapbox Science 2019 Bristol

Soapbox Science returns to Bristol for another day of free scientific discovery! 

 This summer, on the 13th July between 12pm – 3pm, Broadmead will be transformed into a platform for scientific discussion and debate. Come along and meet real scientists in your community and listen to the cutting edge research they are working on; from camouflage in animals to growing red blood cells in the lab. Twelve women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) will be informally discussing their research across the three hours. Join in the fun by asking them questions and taking part in activities, practical demonstrations and debates. 

Meet the Soapbox Science 2019 Bristol local organising team.
