About  us

Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform for promoting women scientists and the science they do. Soapbox Science provides an opportunity for adults, teens, and children alike, to meet prominent female leaders in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEMM) and become inspired by their success. This event is part of an international initiative by Soapbox Science, which aims to bring science to people and challenge gender stereotypes in science careers. Not only does this introduce the public to the fascinating research being conducted by these female leaders, but it shows young people what they are capable of accomplishing in science and as a result, it opens a door full of exciting career paths. 

This year our event will be held online during Science Literacy Week. The two-day event happening on September 22nd from 1-3PM and September 23rd from 6-8PM will empower young people, specifically girls and women, to pursue their dreams, much like our amazing speakers.

By including women who study in a diversity of fields within STEMM, we hope to not only draw in students with many different interests, but also showcase the endless possibilities that exist within these fields.
