LSE 2014 Soapbox Flier

From stem cells and climate change, to biofuels and space travel, science often courts controversy.

Join early-career researchers as they stand on their soapboxes and take part in a dynamic exchange of opinions.

Part of our evening science festival, Science Uncovered.

The speakers are recent graduates and researchers from Imperial College, the London School of Economics, the Royal College of Art and the Museum.

There are new speakers every 30 minutes. Drop in and join this event at any time.

Topics for discussion include:
– Should science ever be censored?
– Is ignorance more important than knowledge in science?
– Is the printed word dead?
