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
