April 12, 2022 – Della Pietra Special Event: Celebrating Science in a Fractured Society
Special panel discussion that will focus on science in a fractured society. What do we do to bring more of our society into the scientific conversation? How do we spark life-long appreciation for the sheer joy of “finding things out”? How do we raise awareness that either we are all part of the solution or we face an unsettling future? All of these questions and more will be discussed with a stellar panel.
