Pioneers in Science is an interactive program that gives high school students from around the world rare and intimate access to Nobel Laureates, presidential advisors, and other trailblazing scientists. Presented in collaboration with the Global Nomads Group, a non-profit organization whose goal is to foster dialogue and understanding among the world’s youth, Pioneers in Science encourages students to participate and ask questions during engaging town-hall-style discussions where speakers share their personal stories, life challenges and career highlights, all with the goal of inspiring by example. This year’s program features chemical engineer Lisa P. Jackson, a renowned scientist who brings two decades of experience as a pioneering environmental regulator to the post of Administrator of the Environmental Agency.
