4:30-6:00 PM: Student Reflections: Brandeis and the Dead Sea Scrolls
Mandel 2nd floor lobby

The collaboration between the Museum of Science and Brandeis University on the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibition offered a unique opportunity for Brandeis students to bring their expertise to and learn from an exhibition of astonishing cultural and historic richness and global significance.

Over the course of the partnership, students contributed to the public education mission of the Museum of Science; Brandeis's intellectual commitment to explore connections between disciplines; youth enrichment in Waltham and beyond; and the wider scholarly research community.

This event celebrates the achievements of student participants in the partnership, providing a forum to share their diverse 21st century reflections on gaining and disseminating knowledge about an extraordinary period of our ancient past. Presenters are students in departments such as biology, chemistry, education, Near Eastern and Judaic Studies and physics.

The event will be held in the Mandel Center 2nd floor lobby, where a selection of Brandeis-owned artifacts from the time period of the Dead Sea Scrolls are on display (courtesy of The Eunice M. L. Cohen Classical Studies Artifact Research Collection, or CLARC). This exhibit was curated by CLARC student interns.

Reception with refreshments. Free and open to the public; all are welcome.
