Members of the Harvard community are invited to celebrate the opening of The Laboratory at Harvard (aka “The Lab”), a new platform for student idea experimentation in the arts and sciences.  The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 8.

A three-year experiment, The Lab will provide flexible exhibition space for student idea development within the arts and sciences through work-in-progress exhibits, monthly “Idea Nights,” and annual experiments between leading international artists and Harvard University scientists.

The Lab is directed by David Edwards, Gordon McKay Professor of the Practice of Biomedical Engineering at Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), and supported by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard, SEAS, the Harvard Graduate School of Design, the American Repertory Theater, the Harvard Office of the Provost, the Harvard Initiative for Global Health, and the Wyss Institute.

The event is free and will take place in the lobby and ground floor of the Northwest Building (52 Oxford St., Cambridge). Registration is required.
