World Science Festival Gala


Kicking off the 11th World Science Festival on May 29th, the 2018 Gala celebrates the inspiring lives and achievements of five remarkable women across science history whose profound insights transformed the world: Marie Curie, Alice Ball, Rosalind Franklin, Vera Rubin, and Maryam Mirzakhani. Woven together by narrative and performance, the evening pays tribute to these extraordinary pioneers who paved the way for today’s brilliant leaders and those of tomorrow.

Following the performance will be a seated dinner featuring science-inspired delicacies, molecular mixology,
and out-of-this-world desserts.

This stellar evening is not to be missed.
