Why is science important for theology?
Why is theology important for science?
This day-long event will feature three different approaches to exploring these two burning questions.
First, there will be keynote presentations by two world-renowned speakers: Br. Guy Consolmagno SJ, Director of the Vatican Observatory, Rome and Todd A. Salzmann, PhD, the Amelia and Emil Graff Professor of Catholic Theology, Creighton University.
Second, teachers and students from four Chicagoland Catholic high schools will share innovative and creative projects and approaches to course lessons that engage a rich science and religion dialog.
And third, other sessions will highlight exciting and imaginative demonstrations and displays such as The International Jesuit Ecology Project’s, “Healing Earth,” a free online environmental textbook written by over 90 contributors around the world; and Zooniverse, the world’s largest platform for people-powered research, hosted by the Adler Planetarium’s Citizen Science Initiative.
