Soapbox Science is coming to Kitchener-Waterloo! On June 9, 2019 from 2-5pm, Kitchener’s Victoria Park will transform into a hub of scientific learning and discussion, as some of our leading scientists take to their soapboxes to showcase their science to the general public. The event’s mission: to help eliminate gender inequality in science by raising the profile, and challenging the public’s view, of women and non-binary people in science. These interactive, engaging talks encourage everyone to learn more about science. Questions are encouraged!
