LISTEN TO OUR PODCAST
This week, Eva and Olga welcome world-renowned theoretical physicist, Professor Brian Greene. Hailed by the Washington Post as “the single best explainer of abstruse concepts in the world today,” Professor Greene has a gift of finding creative ways to explain complicated scientific subjects so that anyone can understand them. Professor Greene is known to the public through his New York Times best selling books and numerous media appearances from the Late Show with Stephen Colbert to Charlie Rose. He is also founder of the World Science Festival, which celebrated its 10th annual event this year in New York City.

It is really our way of figuring out how the world works.” We encourage all you Big Dreamers to develop a love for science, which can be used inside and outside the classroom.
