Date:

Location: 

Harvard Ed Portal, 224 Western Ave., Allston

What should a 200-person physics lecture and a one-on-one cello lesson have in common? More than you might think! Join Professor Logan McCarty and Project LENS for an evening of musical performance and discussion, where we'll explore what science pedagogy can learn from music pedagogy. This event is free and open to the public.

As Director of Physical Sciences Education at Harvard, Prof. McCarty is constantly seeking ways to improve student learning and engagement in the sciences. Project LENS is a performance collaborative that seeks to reveal connections between music and a wide variety of topics in the world beyond.
