Pop Culture & SciFi Fueling Science Future

Date TBA

Science fiction has long fueled pop culture. But today’s SciFi creators go beyond their imagination; they apply breakthroughs in fields such as nanotechnology, the search for extraterrestrial life, quantum physics, and resistance movements to imagine what’s possible in the future, and inspire the realities of today. Modern science fiction is not just entertainment, but a sharp tool to inspire careers in STEAM, bolster citizen science, advance our knowledge of the universe, be a champion for cultures and communities, and solve impossible challenges using creative approaches. Hear from leaders in science, entertainment and SciFi, and be inspired to use your creativity to push the boundaries of what’s possible. Together, we can help take humanity farther than we ever could imagine.
