Are you a woman* in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine) and passionate about your science? Have you been waiting for that perfect opportunity to talk to people about your work? Want to receive training in science communication? Then Soapbox Science Berlin is waiting for you. Apply now to be one of our 12 speakers. Deadline 28th February!
Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform and our events transform public areas into an arena for public learning and scientific debate. Further, we explicitly engage women* as we want to promote the visibility of women* in science. Take a look at these links to learn more about us and what we do:
Our event will take place on the 26th of June 2021 between 2 – 5pm at Washington Platz by Berlin Central Station (Hauptbahnhof). We are very hopeful that despite the pandemic, circumstances will allow for the event to happen in public but keep in mind that this might be subject to change. We will communicate any changes to the event should this be necessary. We are looking forward to receiving your submissions and if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out!
