Technology and Society Forum

  Celebrating the Spectrum of Creativity

For spring 2009, the NJIT Technology and Society Forum offers two presentations on the scientific, economic and social creativity needed to build a culture that values sustainability over destructive consumption. Members of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra will celebrate musical creativity, and NJIT Professor David Rothenberg will provide analytical insights into animal communication and perform compositions for the clarinet that blend spontaneous musical inventiveness with the rhythms and exuberance of listening to nature.
