Scientific literacy is in our DNA, stuck right between the adenine and the thymine. Even our logo is educational; it’s Nikola Tesla and Marie Curie, though we’ve taken a bit of creative liberty with their style choices.
Through our products, we’re spreading scientific literacy every day by inviting curiosity and making connections.
Now, let’s take a second to talk about lithium batteries.
We promise it’s relevant.
If you’re reading this on a cell phone or laptop, you’ve got a lithium battery right in front of you. The invention of rechargeable, lightweight lithium-ion batteries began in the 1970s as a response to the oil crisis. Lithium-ion batteries paved the way for wireless technologies, commercially viable electric vehicles, and even helped make solar and wind power more practical. In 2019, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to the three scientists whose work on lithium-ion batteries has fundamentally altered the future of human life.
Can you name one of them?
That’s why we need scientific literacy. People around the world are deeply impacted by scientific research and advancements, yet few of them know or care.
My Science Boutique strives to start the conversation and ignite curiosity. Let’s build bridges between the scientific community and the people whose lives are impacted by our work, whether they know it yet or not.
Oh, and by the way, that Nobel Prize was awarded to John B. Goodenough, M. Stanley Whittingham, and Akira Yoshino.
