Science is everywhere. Understand science and you will see the world differently.

To celebrate 100 years since the Faculty of Science (University of Malta) was founded Think has prepared a focus stuffed with exciting research. Francesca Vassallo explains how crystals are not just pretty rocks but also medicines and life-giving molecules.

Whilst Natasha Padfield talks about climate models for the Mediterranean and how Malta’s air pollution is being sussed. There is a lot more research happening at Faculty that is trying to discover a brighter future, but first a bit of history.
