Congratulations to M-A High School on the opening of the STEAM building. As a '67 grad, I was strongly influenced and encouraged to pursue science by Dr. Harry Wong, who helped many of us get access to exceptional resources like SRI and grants and summer programs at UC campuses. As important as critical thinking and logic is in science, however, art has always been important to me as a means of fostering creativity and imagination, which are essential to seeing "outside the box" when trying to come up with novel solutions to difficult problems.
