Stephon Alexander, an internationally known physicist, and accomplished jazz saxophonist, visited SLA earlier this month as a guest of The Franklin Institute to share his vision of how science and music are really one. The talk focused on cosmology and quantum mechanics, which he related to sound through the wave phenomena present in both, and through the physics of sound in everyday music. Dr. Alexander also took the science of music to a new level, exploring geometric patterns in saxophone improvisation. He illustrated his points using his saxophone - and at the end, gave an improvised jazz performance.

In one of the Fall mini-courses at the Franklin Institute, 20 freshman SLA students learned to computer program in Scratch. The workshop was led by postdoctoral fellow Dr. Deborah Fields from the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania. Some of the best students completed by these junior programmers are shown below. We're very proud of their creative work!
