Come along to Brighton’s first ever Soapbox Science!

Soapbox Science is a great way for the public to engage with leading female scientists who are making a real difference to the world we live in.

Spend an afternoon with some of the UK’s leading female scientists - come to Brighton’s first ever Soapbox Science event.

On Saturday 29 July, female scientists from across the south-east will take to their soapboxes on Brighton seafront in a bid to answer some of life’s biggest questions.

Covering science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine, the worldwide event will demonstrate the breadth of research taking place across the region, by researchers from the universities of Sussex, Brighton, Portsmouth and Southampton.

From 1-4pm, scientists will discuss, debate and demonstrate their areas of expertise, including how they are trying to untangle the web of Alzheimer’s disease and how they are discovering what our urban wildlife really get up to on their nights out.

Event organiser, Dr Katy Petherick from the School of Life Sciences at Sussex, said: “Soapbox Science is a great way for the public to engage with leading female scientists who are making a real difference to the world we live in.

“From the massive mysteries of the universe to microscopic molecules in our own brains – we’ll be answering some of life’s biggest questions.”
