Welcome to ScienceQuest!
Here, we believe that power lies in knowledge and that knowledge is a commodity that should be freely available to all. We’re excited to have you along our journey to learn all that there is to know.
As a young company, finding our footing in the vast world of scientific discovery, we want you the help us along on our mission to communicate truth via science and inform, educate and entertain the public and raise awareness of science related stories. We also hope to merge the gap between science and the humanities, which are increasingly dependent on one another in today’s information economy, where stories and media are king.
ScienceQuest NextGen Science Literary Writing Competition
Our first step towards merging these two disciplines is our first ever
ScienceQuest NextGen Science Literary Writing Competition, which is now open for entries!
