Senior Research Fellow at Queen’s University Belfast & Soapbox Science organiser for Northern Ireland
This year, Soapbox Science is coming to Northern Ireland! Showcasing eminent women scientists talking to the general public about their work and passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM), we simply can not wait to bring this accessible and fun initiative to Belfast.
So, if you are a woman working in STEMM with enthusiasm for science communication, here is a platform made just for you – no hassle of power point presentations, open air event and open to everyone! Training and support to help engage with the general public will be provided to all our speakers.
We’re looking for speakers from across the island to join us on Saturday June 20th 2015 in Ulster Museum (front entrance; see picture on the right) and Botanic Gardens (in front of Kelvin Statue and Glass House; see picture on the left), Belfast.
We’re also looking for volunteers (of any gender) to help out with organizing the event beforehand, and to help on the day gathering up crowds, passing round props and holding umbrellas during the inevitable rain! This should be a great opportunity for all our volunteers to network with some amazing scientists, learn more about science communication and have fun.
We could not bring Soapbox Science to Belfast without the support of Queen’s University Belfast and the Science and Technology Facilities Council: thank you for your support!
