Come learn from, question, probe, interact with and be inspired by some of Australia's leading female researchers in STEM.

Over 4 nights, Soapbox Science Sydney Online presents 12 researchers, each having 45 minutes to amaze you with their latest discoveries and to answer the questions you have been burning to ask.

We want these events to be as interactive as possible so there are multiple opportunities to ask questions.

The more questions the better!

Some of our topics include ‘Training your immune system to work smarter, not harder’, ‘Preschoolers views on IT’, ‘Coral matchmaking for resilient reefs’ & ‘Pill testing: why it’s important!’.

The fun of this event is that it is open to EVERYONE! So tune in with your friends, family, kids or colleagues and enjoy a whirlwind tour of amazing Australian research.
