Soapbox Science Newcastle 2018 – Call for volunteers!

Are you passionate about science? Do you love talking to the public about science? If so, you’ve got the makings of a Soapbox Science Volunteer!

We are currently looking for volunteers for the Newcastle 2018 event on Saturday 16 June 2018, 12pm-3pm, at Grey’s monument –

Soapbox Science is not just about the speakers. Without a support team of committed, enthusiastic people, a Soapbox Science event simply cannot happen. Each event relies on an animated team of up to 20 volunteers. Volunteers play a crucial role in rounding up the public, chatting to the public informally about being a scientist and the science that interests you, supporting the speakers by managing props, as well as handing out Soapbox goodies to lucky audience members! But perhaps the most important role of the volunteers is in gathering data so we can monitor effectively the success of the event: the volunteers carry out the bulk of our streamlined, centralised evaluation process, through interviews, observations, counting footfall and advertising our post-event online surveys.
