Human beings have been struggling to understand the world around them since time immemorial. The discussion about time, space, matter, energy and life has engulfed some of the greatest minds of human history, from Democritus to Stephen Hawking. We believe that an appreciation for science, and the ability to engage in scientific practices, improve our ability to live lives of meaning.
