Soapbox Science @ Berlin Science Week ⁞ November 7, 2017

On Tuesday November 7th, 2017, noon - 2 pm in the Sony Center, Potsdamer Platz, Soapbox Science was staging its second event in Berlin, this time as part of Berlin Science Week. Everybody who wanted to see what Soapbox Science looks like in action, could joined us for talks on subjects ranging from structural biology and neuroscience to ecology and climate change (free entrance). This event was co-sponsored by NeuroCure, the Einstein Center for Neurosciences Berlin, and the IGB Leibniz-Institute of Freshwater Ecology and Inland Fisheries in support of women in science.

Soapbox Science is a novel public outreach platform for promoting women scientists and the science they do. Soapbox Science events transform public areas into an arena for public learning and scientific debate; they follow the format of London Hyde Park’s Speaker’s Corner, which is historically an arena for public debate. 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 amphitheatre – 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.

Speaker:
Mariana Cerdeira, Teresa De Marzo, Sophie Dithmer, Anja Eggert, Constance Holman, Zara Khan, Katarzyna Winek, Wing Ying Chow.
