The subject of Carter’s lecture will be fusion energy and although the lecture is directed towards those in the astronomy and physics classes, Nassar encourages all interested students to attend. Rajeev Jain (Gautam ’08), a professor of electrical engineering at UCLA, will speak Oct. 27. Nassar expects to have six lectures this year and says the purpose of the series is to make a link between college and high school sciences.
