“There is a fascinating duality in science. On the one hand, progress is closely linked to ourselves as dedicated individuals. On the other hand, its fundamental goal is to search for greater truths outside of ourselves. The Science Bridge will respect both aspects of science in uniting individuals from different cultures to thrive together in finding the greater truths of our world.”
