Einstein Exhibit in São Paulo

We just got back from the Einstein exhibit, another magnificent event from the Sangari Institute in partnership with the American Museum of Natural History and sponsored by Bradesco. This specific exhibit has been seen by over 2 million visitors in New York, Chiacago, Boston, Los Angeles, Jerusalem, Ottawa and Istanbul.  I'm a huge admirer of the amazing contribution the Sangari Institute is making to the city of São Paulo by bringing world-class exhibitions that provide Brazilian children, students and families with the unique opportunity to explore science in a fun and interactive way. Last year, they brought the Darwin exhibit and earlier this year  The Genome Revolution two equally amazing events.

I found this inspiring quote from one of the most brilliant minds of the 20th Century...

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity."  
---  Albert Einstein
