Divine, Oregon State University’s premiere all-female A Cappella group, will perform a concert of biochemistry & biophysics professor Kevin Ahern’s “Metabolic Melodies,” proof that music is the perfect backdrop for science, teaching and learning.
Part of SPARK, a year of arts + science at OSU, the event will be held Tuesday, November 1, 2016, at 7:00 pm in the LaSells Stewart Center’s Construction & Engineering Hall with a dessert reception at 6:30 pm.
Metabolic Melodies, a collection of hundreds of biochemistry songs, capture biochemical processes in catchy lyrics based on popular melodies.
A legend at OSU for more than 20 years, Ahern regularly sings to his students to make biochemistry less daunting. It has worked wonders to ease students’ fears in introductory biochemistry classes over the years.
This SPARK event is sponsored by the Colleges of Science and is free and open to the public.
