Dr. Brian Greene, world-renowned physicist for his groundbreaking discoveries in the field of superstring theory, will deliver a lecture titled "The Drive to Innovate: Stories from the Frontiers of Discovery" as part of the Guest of Honor University Artist/Lecture Series at Kent State University on Wednesday, April 12 in the KIVA.
THE DRIVE TO INNOVATE: STORIES FROM THE FRONTIERS OF DISCOVERY
"Innovation, exploration, and discovery are deeply ingrained in human nature, and the keys to their success transcend disciplines. Professor Greene uses three stories from the frontiers of science to examine how essential features — staying the course while shedding expectations, maintaining individuality while working collaboratively, accepting failure while pushing for success — can coalesce into breathtaking results. Sparking new insights, this presentation explores how we can unleash our innate drive to innovate."
This event, sponsored by the Office of the Provost and coordinated by the Honors College, is free and open to the public. A reception and book signing will follow the lecture.
