About the symposium

 

Focused on making innovative scientific research accessible and relevant to a wide audience, the annual Science Without Limits Symposium seeks to increase participation in the physical and natural sciences among all groups, particularly those that have been historically underrepresented.

Each fall, the symposium showcases new and exciting developments in interdisciplinary areas of scientific research and successfully engages diverse audiences through presentations, colloquiums, forums, and interactive activities.

Launched in 2008, with the support of a grant from Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the symposium broadens access to the sciences for all who attend. Now in it’s fifth year, the symposium has received sustaining funding through the generosity of the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation.

All events are free and open to the public. Please feel free to share your experience on Twitter using the hashtag #lcscience.
