Soapbox Science Halifax

Halifax is excited to welcome Soapbox Science to Canada’s Ocean Playground for the very first time. Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform for promoting women scientists and the science they do.​ The event will take place on June 16th, 2018 on the historic Halifax waterfront at the new Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market. Our twelve scientists will engage with the public on a variety of subjects related to science, technology, engin​eering, and mathematics (STEM). With Soapbox Science, we want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy, learn from, heckle, question, probe, interact with and be inspired by some of our leading scientists. No middle man, no powerpoint slide, no amphitheater – just remarkable women in science who are there to amaze you with their latest discoveries, and to answer the science questions you have been burning to ask.
