Soapbox Science in Bristol City Centre on 7th June!

Update: Unfortunately, I had to pull out of this event, but Soapbox Science Bristol is still happening on 7th June, 2-5 pm!

Have you heard of Soapbox Science? Soapbox Science is an innovative and awesome initiative that brings science right into the middle of cities, and shines the spotlight on female scientists. The YouTube video below gives a very good flavour of what a Soapbox Science event is like.

I am delighted – and a bit scared – that my application to present at the Bristol event on 7th of June has been successful. Together with my colleagues Vanessa Sousa de Vieira and Milly Farrell, we will bring plant cells to life in the City Centre – without microscopes, electricity or AV equipment. How, do you ask? You will have to come and find out! (We are not really sure yet, but we already have a bunch of ideas. I’ll keep you posted!).
