On the Shoulders of Giants

From astronauts to authors; forensic scientists to marine biologists—On the Shoulders of Giants provides a forum for the general public to interact with and learn from Nobel Laureates, MacArthur Fellows and other award-winning industry experts. Since its inception more than 30 year ago, we have engaged a host of scientists, explorers and educators that have made a difference in our World. Notables such as primatologist Jane Goodall; inventor Paul McCready: forensic pathologist Henry Lee: oceanographer Sylvia Earle: marine biologist Eugenie Clark: Nobel physicist Sheldon Glashow; genomics researcher Edison Liu: and first woman to walk in space Kathryn Sullivan have been but a few of our distinguished guests.
