The Grammar of Science and Technology
In 1902, Albert Einstein gifted a book, Karl Pearson’s The Grammar of Science, to his colleagues to start a conversation about the universe. Expanding on that conversation, we invite a variety of experts to share the stories behind landmark advancements and discoveries in the fields of science and technology. Recorded in front of a live audience, this educational program is designed as a series of brief explorations into our natural world and the human ability to manipulate it. Produced in partnership with Ingram Micro and Chapman University.
