Dear Women* Scientists,
Have you ever thought about creatively wrapping your research work into just a few minutes to bring your science to the public, in an accessible, fun and non-intimidating way? Then you are just the right person for this year’s Soapbox Science event in Munich 2022 and we are very excited to invite you to be a speaker! Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform for promoting women* scientists and the science they do. The aim of Soapbox Science is to inspire people to become science enthusiasts and to solidify the image of women* as scientists.
The Soapbox Arena will be at: Odeonsplatz** on Saturday, 23rd July from 14:00 – 17:00. Soapbox Science speakers will be on stage for one hour. The talks can be in German or English, you decide. There is no power-point (but props are welcomed), just you and the audience! If it sounds scary, don’t worry! We will provide you with a speaker's pack and help develop your talk with a public speaking workshop. You can also take a look at last year's speakers and their talks at our online event on our Youtube channel. To find out more information about Soapbox Science you can visit our Facebook or Twitter and please do not hesitate to contact me for any questions. I really hope you consider this opportunity and apply to be a speaker here, the application deadline is 28th February. P.S. Feel free to spread the word around to any women* scientists.
Kind Regards, Simone
