Today was an entire day of celebration of the opening of the Gabrielle H. Reem and Herbert J. Kayden Center for Science and Computation at Bard College at Annadale on Hudson.

Although most people will think of Bard for its Liberal Arts program the college does have a significant science department.  Many students have received their pre-medical training here. Others have pursued studies in environmental studies and computer science.

The day was filled with hands-on workshops such as: How biodiversity can protect health, Mobile robots, and Complex traits: The new Genetic Paradigm.

This was followed by a panel discussion;"Educating Future Scientists."

 

This modern and functional building was designed by renowned architect Rafael Vinoly

 

  

 

 

 

 

At 3:00 PM The Bard College Conservatory of Music Chamber Orchestra performed works from Mendelssohn, Mozart and Tchaikovsky as well as a solo violin performance by Weigang Li. This was free to the public and was held at the Sosnoff Theater at The Richard B. Fisher Center for the Performing Arts.

Jennifer I love the look of the buildings.  Looks like you not only got to see some science projects but also got to listen to good music.
