Science catalyzes progress. It allows us to explore our biggest questions, generate new ideas, and seek out solutions. In 2019, TED partnered with The National Academy of Sciences, The Kavli Foundation, and the Simons Foundation to bring to life an exciting day of original TED Talks from within our shared knowledge networks. Held at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C., TED@NAS brought together diverse perspectives, sparking insights that affect our everyday lives. This inaugural event celebrated science –– through radical collaboration, quantum leaps, and bold thinking, science is the powerful tool that ignites change and fuels our way forward.
