Last Friday, giants of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) converged on LSC to celebrate true genius and creativity. Sir Richard Branson, founder of Virgin Group; Garry Kasparov, master strategist and famed chess player; and Dr. Cori Bargmann, leading neurobiologist, received Genius Awards from like-minded luminaries Buzz Aldrin, Nate Silver, and Dr. James Watson.

We had an exceptional evening honoring Sir Richard Branson, Garry Kasparov, and Dr. Cori Bargmann. Thank you to all of our generous supporters!
