The Soapbox Science is a science popularization event that has started in the United Kingdom and is spread all over the world. This year it will be held in three different cities of Brazil: Maceió, Rio de Janeiro and Salvador. The Soapbox Science Maceió is organized by women scientists from different fields at Universidade Federal de Alagoas. During two days of November, 12 women scientists will be explaining their research for the overall public in the streets of the beautiful capital of Alagoas! The first day will happen at the Shopping Patio and the second day will take place at the Ponta Verde beach. Our main goal is to show for the non academic people the importance of scientific research and the quality of the work done by women scientists.
