Audacious Ingenuity: Pushing the Boundaries of Science
Wednesday, Sept. 14 and Thursday, Sept. 15, 2016
In the 2016 Hancock Symposium we will explore how scientific inquiry, deduction, and passion have shaped the world in which we live.
Science uses what little we know to answer questions about the unknown. We can see science at work every day when we take a moment to enjoy the natural beauty around us, through medicine and technological advances protecting the health of all living things, to the exceptional few who cross boundaries and push the limits to fight for a better tomorrow.
This symposium will enable students and the Westminster community to appreciate how science has made the complex seem simple and to appraise where the global community stands as we edge further into new scientific frontiers.
