The Inspired Scientist: A Program for High School Students


April 29, 2009 | Instituto Cervantes | NYC

With Majora Carter, Tijs Goldschmidt, Kimiko Hahn, Sandeep Jauhar, and Harriet A. Washington; moderated by Robert Krulwich

Our panel of authors will discuss science writing as a highly imaginative form that works to free readers’ imaginations. They’ll share stories that illustrate the way that theory, fact, and narrative come together to make an authoritative record of what we know and what has yet to be discovered. 

Cosponsored by Instituto Cervantes and Consulate General of Spain
