At the heart of our work is the people we serve. The Science Center isn’t just about creating new jobs and new technologies – we’re making an investment in the prosperity and quality of life for all members of our community, and it’s the reason our mission focuses not only on advancing innovative technologies but uplifting communities and improving lives.
Among the people we serve are the four individuals who are featured in our anthem. Their companies are addressing heath inequities, developing maternal health solutions, and represent the next generation of entrepreneurial ingenuity that defines Philadelphia’s legacy.
