As a part of National Science Week 2016, Soapbox Science will take place in Brisbane where leading female researchers will talk about their scientific projects and why they love science.
Soapbox Science is a public speaking and outreach event aimed at encouraging girls and women to take up careers in science. You can hear all about why these scientists love their jobs, ask questions about their research, and see that women belong in the sciences just as much as men do.
I will be speaking at this years Soapbox Science event at King George Square in Brisbane, on the 20th August between 1-4 pm. My talk title (coming as no surprise to long time readers of this blog) is: “Fossil forensics: how taphonomy helps us understand the death and decay of dinosaurs”. Keep an eye out for updates between now and August!
