Cambridge Science Festival Opening Night: The Continuing Education of Eugene Mirman

Eugene Mirman has been many things, but he wasn't a good high school student. His teachers constantly told him he wasn't living up to his potential, and his 2.1 GPA was hard to argue with. Eugene has come a long way since then, and his new method of schooling will allow the audience to learn along with him. The Continuing Education of Eugene Mirman features MIT neuroscientist Rebecca Saxe, who will teach Eugene about her research with the help of science journalist Anna Rothschild, who will ask informed questions and keep Eugene on-task. Kind of like a Montessori school but with fewer shadow puppets, Eugene's new and innovative approach to learning will make science accessible and entertaining.

The Continuing Education of Eugene Mirman is produced by Pretty Good Friends with generous support from the de Florez Fund for Humor.


Doors open at 7:00pm

Grist is a source of intelligent, irreverent environmental news and commentary that’s been around since 1999, when the internet was made of rubber bands. We set out to change the way the story of the environment was told — to make the issues accessible and relevant, and to wake readers up to the problems confronting us. Now, with the alarm raised, we are pointing our beacon in a new direction: toward a just, sustainable future. To do this work, we will transform the story of the environment, and the story society tells itself about its future. Our motto: Less freaking out, more figuring out.
