Sound engineer visits science class

Scott Nussbaum

On Friday, Dr. Abeer Alwan will visit the Middle School to speak to Susannah Gordon’s Integrated Science II class about sound engineering, with an emphasis on hearing.

Alwan, who is the mother of Nial Alwash ’16, is a physician at UCLA who works primarily with developing hearing aids and will be visiting Gordon’s first and second period classes.

The Integrated Science II class, which focuses on chemical reactions, biological energy, energy transport through waves and mechanical energy, will utilize Alwan’s visit to understand more about hearing and how hearing aids work.
