This event has now passed. We didn’t record this week’s session, but read on for a short summary!
We started with a short introduction to get to know everybody, and then opened the floor to suggestions of interesting topics:
After plenty of fantastic suggestions came in, we had a quick vote on which one the group wanted to discuss further.
Finally, we spent the last half hour or so discussing this topic in depth, with some great comments from participants and the initiator of the topic alike.
Join us for our inaugural Science Soapbox where you can join the discussion about the science that is important to you.
Introducing The Science Soap Box
What science-related story has caught your eye over the past year?
What seems to you really important?
This week, instead of Virtual Cafe Sci, we are opening up this space to all you, our audience, to have your say on any science-related item that you’ve found especially interesting, whether in the news, in the journals, or on the web.
You can tell us briefly, in the chat box, what you found; and why you think it matters; and we will then give you time on screen to make the case for why we should all be interested too.
After that, as with all our evenings, we will open the discussion to everyone else, to comment or ask questions – and so you may get the chance to expand and say more.
Intrigued? Watch this short video on our Facebook page for a flavour of the day.
