Tickets are FREE, but you must register to attend


Alec Ross forecasts drivers of change from artificial intelligence and robotics to cybersecurity and cybercrime. Drawing from his best-selling book, The Industries of the Future, the former State Department Senior Advisor for Innovation speaks to the trends and developments that will shape the next decade, illuminating issues around trade, antitrust, taxation, and their impact on markets. Hear how forces like internet freedom, disaster response, commercialization of genomics, and code-ification of money and markets will change the world’s future.

Funding for the Cohen Arts and Lectures Series is made possible by Nancy and Marty Engels in memory of Nancy’s parents, Bernard L. and Bertha F. Cohen ’37.

Beginning in 2018, the FMI Summer Science Program will be
offered at no cost to attending students. As always, admission into
the program will be based on merit, which is determined based on
submitted application, transcript, essay, and recommendation
 Jefferson Medical Camps - Applications open February 15. Links below will take you to information pages.


Last week I attended Camp Cardiac, which is a medical camp at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. I learned so many useful things at Camp Cardiac that will prepare me for a career in the medical profession. First of all, I became CPR certified. We learned how to do stitches, take blood pressure, look at EKGs, and dissected a pig’s heart. Many doctors came in through the week to teach us about different diseases within the cardiovascular system. Also, one day we had the opportunity to talk to med students and ask questions about the medical field and how we should prepare ourselves. I would recommend Camp Cardiac to anyone who is interested in learning more about the field of medicine. They also have Camp Neuro which is centered around learning about the brain. I would like to attend that one next year!
