Soapbox Science aims to get women & girls into STEM

A charity are looking to boost the visibility of women and non-binary people in science, after research showed women only account for 1 in 4 graduating from university in a STEM subject – and that figure hasn’t changed since 2015.

Soapbox Science is hosting an event in the capital which will aim to display science, technology, engineering and mathematics as achievable careers for young women.

Helena spoke to the co-founder Dr Nathalie Pettorelli, who is also a conservation biologist at the Zoological Society of London, to find out more about the charity.
