The Nobel Laureate

We got to hear a lecture by a Nobel Laureate today: Dr. Frank Wilczek, co-winner of the 2004 Nobel Prize for Physics. He came to speak to all Honors and AP science students at Weston, as well as interested faculty. The experience was definitely worthwhile, even though a majority of the talk itself was incomprehensible. But at least he used Keynote on an iBook, and we enjoyed his video and slides of the Nobel ceremony.

Interestingly enough, the talk became slightly more understandable when I attempted to tell others about it. And it’s not every day that one gets to hear a Nobel laureate and shake his hand.
