Soapbox Science London 2022

 
  2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
 Free

Southbank will transform into a hub of scientific learning and discussion, as some of London’s leading scientists take to their soapboxes to showcase their science to the general public.

The event’s mission remains the same: to help eliminate gender inequality in science by raising the profile, and challenging the public’s view, of women and non-binary people in science.
