This year’s Scientia lecture series touches on the many connections that animate nature and human life. All organisms and materials exist in a deeply interconnected system. Humans have complex international connections; smart devices increasingly have interconnections independent of their designers; and the university reminds us of the collaborative connections across fields. This year’s series explores many of these connections that faculty pursue here at Rice.
Scientia is a faculty-led Institute at Rice that promotes multidisciplinary engagement to benefit the university and the Houston community at large.
