Grab your lab coats and head out to Navy Pier on Saturday for some Soapbox Science!
From 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wave Wall Platform, a dozen of the top early career women in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) from Chicago-area institutions will engage visitors with a broad range of topics – astrophysics, planetary science, particle physics, ecology, neuroscience, cancer research, mathematics, and material science.
Participants of this year’s event come from the University of Chicago, Fermilab, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the Illinois Institute of Technology. Here you can experience an afternoon of science, hands-on demonstrations, debate and discussion, and celebrate the contributions of women in STEMM. This event is free.
Soapbox Science is a series happening all over that world and provides a chance for everyone to learn, question, interact, and enjoy science.
