The desire to push beyond the status quo is what motivates the people at the core of the Science Center.
Art draws the eye skyward at 3737 Market Street. This Annual Review celebrates the artists, entrepreneurs and scientists of the Science Center.

Letter from the Chairman and the President

We are all scientists!

This profound statement is embraced at the Science Center.

We believe that you don't need to work in a lab, or peer through a microscope to appreciate the human quest for discovery that propels scientific inquiry. The corresponding drive to experiment, fail and repeat until a breakthrough is reached exists within us all.

This edition of the Science Center's Annual Review celebrates the wide range of scientists who make up the Science Center — including the entrepreneurs, artists and students who relentlessly pursue discovery. The desire to push beyond the status quo is what motivates all the people who are at the core of the Science Center. The thinkers, doers and entrepreneurs who are bringing to life the ideas that will revolutionize our collective future.

In this report you will find examples of our unique programs that nurture curiosity, inspire creativity, drive innovation and help entrepreneurs bring world-changing technologies to market.

There is also a focus on the development of uCity Square — the place where this is all happening — and a preview of our plans to move the Science Center headquarters, our world-class incubation and commercialization programs, Quorum, our entrepreneurs clubhouse, and FirstHand, our STEM program for youth, to our newest building at 3675 Market Street.

Happy discovering!
