Proceeds from the Gala support the World Science Festival, a year-round celebration of imagination, ingenuity, and inventiveness, that takes science out of the laboratory and into the streets, theaters, museums, and public spaces of New York City and around the world. The Festival’s mission is to cultivate and sustain a general public informed by science, inspired by its wonder, convinced of its value, and prepared to engage with its implications for the future.
