Watch: Bruce Alberts on Science Sandbox

To help forge thoughtful partnerships with organizations that push meaningful science engagement forward, Science Sandbox seeks guidance from an eclectic and esteemed team of advisors who are visionaries across a wide spectrum of expertise.

In May 2017, the Science Sandbox team gathered members of their advisory board, and asked them to consider questions such as, “What does it mean to think like a scientist,” and “How can scientific thinking be used as a tool to make decisions?”
