“Most of the really great breakthroughs in science are unifications.”
– Owen J. Gingerich, Harvard science historian
Higher education institutions are often subject to the same “silo” mentality found in corporations. But many discoveries, innovations, and possibilities come to light when we are willing to combine knowledge across disciplines. As a simple example, consider biomimicry.
Combining knowledge for the purpose of innovation is the heart of the Nova Fellowship. It is an intentional effort by faculty, students, and professionals to leverage the wonders of our free market in order to apply the tools of discovery, innovation, and implementation to address nagging problems in our local communities.
It is an experiment, and we hope you will join us in the process!
