Imagination - Where Science Meets Art
For many young people who are making decisions about their future, science and art have always been seen as opposites. It's a choice between one or the other. Rarely both. But as Albert Einstein once said "The greatest scientists are artists as well." Innovators are able to imagine the unimaginable thanks to the marriage of science and art. In this episode we examine the role of science and art in imagination and education, and talk to seven remarkable women who are bridging the divide. From a neuroscience professor using stand-up comedy to help people understand the brain, to a Hollywood actress and scientist who combines both disciplines in all of her work.
