U-Share arranged Uppsala’s first Soapbox Science event


On 25 May, for three hours the general public in Uppsala could hear women scientists present their exciting research.

Outside the University Library Carolina Rediviva, twelve women scientists stood on wooden boxes and talked about topics such as elementary particles, pig parasites, microscopic algae, volcanoes and viruses.

The event attracted a mixed group of visitors, where many stopped by as they happened to pass the venue. Surveys among the visitors revealed that they found the event enjoyable with interesting topics.
