|Soapbox Science 2019
Grand Parade (click for map)
Saturday 06 July, 12:00 – 15:00
Soapbox Science is an international series of science communication events, bringing science to the streets and highlighting the work of women in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine). Soapbox Science events transform public areas into an arena for public learning and scientific debate. The aim is to ensure everyone has the chance to enjoy, learn from, question, probe, interact with and be inspired by leading scientists. The event format is based on Speaker’s Corner in Hyde Park in London, which is historically an arena for public debate.
On Saturday 06 July, Soapbox Science comes to Grand Parade in Cork City Centre for the first time, where 12 speakers will share their latest discoveries on topics ranging from seaweed for medicinal use, the impact of micro plastics, and animal culture, to birds and off-shore wind-farms sharing the sky.
The event is sponsored by UCC School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Science (BEES).
