Centre:MK is a big and busy shopping centre, which attracts a broad cross section of people running errands, shopping and socialising. We are thrilled to be bringing Soapbox Science back here for a fourth year. Hosting our event in Centre:MK, provides the unique opportunity for both shoppers to learn about science straight from scientists, but also for 12 female scientists to share their science with an incredibly diverse audience, including many who might not normally attend a science event. This year we have twelve amazing presenters sharing their knowledge and passion about many science topics, from manufacturing cars and aircrafts, to fossils, rocks, climate change, the value of water, fatbergs, farming and more.
