Soapbox Science 2022
12:00 - 15:00
Grey's Monument, Newcastle upon Tyne
This year marks 11 years of Soapbox Science. This worldwide initiative celebrates women and non-binary scientists by placing them on soapboxes in busy, free, public spaces. It provides an opportunity for the public to meet local scientists, find out about cutting-edge research and ask questions.
On Saturday 9 July, Dr Rachel Dickinson will be bringing our work to the streets of Newcastle upon Tyne as part of Soapbox Science 2021. If you are in the area, please come along to Grey’s Monument from 12-3 pm to speak to Rachel about the NIHR Newcastle MIC. You can also talk to other Soapbox Science speakers in the region about their work.
The free event lasts three hours and features four speakers per hour, presenting simultaneously, with the audience free to move between them. We will provide details on the full breakdown of the event in the week leading up to Soapbox Science. So please keep an eye on this page and follow us on Twitter for updates.
Newcastle has hosted a Soapbox Science event for the last seven years. The event is supported by the Faculty of Medical Sciences Engagement team at Newcastle University.
