“We hold scientists in high regard as truth seekers and knowledge keepers. Their findings and research are independently checked, verified, proven and subjected to peer review. These processes and methods are applied rigorously and form a common framework for scientific inquiry. In this series of six lectures, scientists from across disciplines shed light on how the scientific community works together to build consensus from evidence, mediates differences of opinion in the face of debate and ultimately establishes theory – scientific truth that grows and evolves over time.”
