Next event

Soapbox Science Milton Keynes was back in 2018 – with our event on June 30.  We had twelve amazing presenters sharing their knowledge and passion about diverse science topics, from flight engineering, farming, life beyond earth, plant growth, gut bacteria, stars, innovative waste management, mountains and more.
