Livermore Science and Society Center
Many of our personal and societal decisions combine science and values, and understanding how nature works can improve the quality of our decisions.
We are dedicated to helping all understand the science behind topics such as
- Climate and weather
- Energy, water and transportation systems
- Health, medicine and bionics
- Sustainable agriculture
- Astronomy and space exploration
- Earthquakes and plate tectonics
- Genetics, ancestry and human migration
- Art and music
- Advanced manufacturing
Our goal is to inspire people of all ages and educational levels.
How simple curiosity, the scientific method, serendipity, and competition combine to advance science.
Understanding the motivations of and relationships among basic science, applied science, and engineering.
Appreciating how our understanding of nature and our values combine to influence our decisions and their possible unintended consequences.
