• On April 22, join us in Kendall Square for a conversation with leading Boston scientists who are also artists – and vice versa – about the neurology of creative thinking, about how music is fundamental to the mind, and about the role it can play in scientific discovery and STEM education. Did we say conversation? Make that a performance of minds and musicians, and prepare for a journey that will engage both your logical thinking and your imagination.
