SCI equally fosters innovation related to engineering (patents, workshops on patents and
the business of science) and related to arts, psychology, ethics, and law. Our focus is
what is creativity and how are breakthroughs achieved? This fairly simple, but
challenging question needs interdisciplinary insight.
The purpose of the Society for Creativity and innovation is to promote interdisciplinary
creativity, enhance creativity in all fields including engineering, physical sciences, and
the social sciences. SCI seeks to work closely with other student organizations in order to
foster creativity on the Harvard student campus. For this purpose, SCI will complement
existing student organizations and not overlap with them. The initiative of SCI will fit in
the field of “art science” as a multidisciplinary creativity initiative, encouraging
imagination, insight, and providing inspiration for students through experienced lecturers. Specialization is, in some cases, related to shrinking viewpoints. SCI takes insights from
many disciplines, to challenge the mind, knowledge, and ethical spirit.
