    Green Buildings and Health: From the Lab to the Real World

    Wednesday, December 14, 2016 | 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Researchers at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and SUNY Upstate Medical University present the results of a new study showing that employees in high-performing, green-certified buildings had higher cognitive function test scores than those in similarly high-performing buildings that were not green certified, even after controlling for other potential explanatory factors.

    The Unification of Physics: The Quest for a Theory of Everything

    This event is sold out
    Featuring: Katherine Freese (Nordita and University of Michigan), Marcelo Gleiser (Dartmouth College), Max Tegmark (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
    Moderator: Steve Paulson (Wisconsin Public Radio)

    A "theory of everything" has thus far eluded physicists seeking to unify the laws of the universe. Physicists Katherine Freese, Marcelo Gleiser, and Max Tegmark debate whether there are scientific and human limits on what can be ultimately known.
