Science, Society and Culture
We seek to provide opportunities for people to forge a connection to science — whether for the first time or a lifetime. Through our initiatives, we work to inspire a feeling of awe and wonder, foster connections between people and science, and support environments that provide a sense of belonging.
Science, Society and Culture Programs
Science Sandbox advances science engagement through boundary-pushing, interdisciplinary projects that illuminate science in culture. In our partnerships we strive to bring to light the role scientific inquiry can play in people’s day-to-day lives, while centering communities and voices that have been historically left out of the conversation.
Simons Foundation Presents
A free event series, Simons Foundation Presents aims to create a space for conversations about science and its broader societal and cultural relevance. Each event pairs one of our 200 researchers with special guests to discuss the intersection of their work, ending with an opportunity for the audience to continue the discussion together in a relaxed atmosphere.
Simons Foundation Presidential Lectures
Simons Foundation Presidential Lectures are curated, high-level scientific talks featuring leading scientists and mathematicians. The lectures are free for the public to attend with the goal of fostering discourse and driving discovery among the broader NYC-area research community.
Autism in the Workplace
Autism in the Workplace works to improve neurodiversity at the Simons Foundation and across industries through mentorship, work skills and job experience. We provide guidance and training to help autistic adults forge successful career paths, and resources to help employers increase neurodiversity at their organizations.
Quanta is an editorially independent magazine that is devoted to providing informative and accessible coverage of current issues in mathematics and basic science.
