Science Matters

A VPM initiative to inspire our community to value science and understand its importance to our future.
Science Matters is a multi-media educational initiative of VPM. Through our “big loud voice” of Radio, Television and the Web, we strive to inspire our community to value science and to understand its importance to our future.
