The nature of work is changing rapidly in the digital age, increasing the demand for specific skills in particular disciplines. At the same time, the United States must not become a nation of specialists who cannot speak one another’s language, especially since changes in individuals’ jobs and even careers will increasingly be the norm. The sciences and the arts, as Albert Einstein said, are “branches from the same tree.” David Skorton, Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, will argue that there is enormous value – for individuals, organizations, and society – in promoting broad educational experiences that integrate the STEM disciplines with the arts and the humanities.

David Skorton's talk will be streamed via Facebook Live on the National Academy of Sciences' page.
