Math and Natural Sciences

Can Psychology complement other sciences like Physics, Chemistry, and Biology despite our seeming struggle to reach the same level of precision with our predictions?
I vividly remember watching Carl Sagan's Cosmos as a little kid and feeling so much awe - we live upon a tiny planet, circling a humdrum star, lost in a galaxy tucked away in a forgotten corner of a universe of billions and billions of galaxies. Yet we're star stuff and we can contemplate the cosmos with science.

Sagan inspired me to major in Physics and, while I eventually found exploring the human condition with science my awe-inspiring path, I'm grateful to have learned so many sciences and love how they fit together. I taught taught math to underprivileged elementary & middle school students, physics at an all-girls high school, and helped run science fairs.
