Princeton Adult School Presents “Innovation: Making the Culture Thrive”

An Eight Part Lecture Series with Noted Princeton Scholars

Beginning on Tuesday, October 20 at 8 p.m., Princeton Adult School will be offerings an eight-part lecture series centered around the experiences and opinions of eight noted Princeton scholars on the subject of “Innovation: Making Culture Thrive.”

The online Zoom video conference course costs $155 to enroll. The class seeks to answer questions such as: How do scientists and scholars translate their research into innovations and inventions that change our lives? Curious students will revel in learning how a molecular biologist discovered how cells talk to each other; an electrical engineer who helps to safeguard implanted medical devices in an interconnected world; a musicologist who has traced the evolution of opera from Venice to Shanghai; a historian who figured out how to use computers to piece together scraps of the “Cairo Geniza,” and much more. Fascinatingly, all these scholars are associated with Princeton.
