Science Center 2020 Impact Report

Time marched on and so did our mission

It’s hard to believe that 2020 began as any other year. We rang in the new year, jumped back into work after the holidays and prepared ourselves for the next several months of cold weather. A few months into the year, reality abruptly shifted, and we had no choice but to adapt our personal and professional lives.

Since then, the concept of time has seemed almost abstract. March bled into April and suddenly it was fall and before we knew it, a new year again. Without those life events, trips, conferences and gatherings that mark specific and meaningful times of the year, it was easy to lose track of time.

But time marched on and so did the Science Center’s mission of commercializing promising technologies, cultivating talent and convening people to inspire action. For that reason, our 2020 impact report is presented as a timeline of our activities.

When we took a step back from the seamless flow of day-to-day telecommuting and mapped our milestones over the last 12 months, we realized that despite the circumstances we accomplished quite a bit. Our 2020 timeline grounds us. It validates that there were indeed 12 months of the year, and that perhaps some of our biggest challenges represent some of our most significant opportunities.
