Quincy Junior High School is excited to announce that on Friday, April 20, 2018, our students will get to experience an energetic and engaging multimedia event presented by the Emmy-nominated Dr. José Francisco Salgado. Dr. Selgado is an astronomer, experimental photographer, visual artist, and public speaker who creates multimedia works that communicate science in engaging ways.

As the co-founder of KV 265, a non-profit science and arts education organization, Dr. Salgado collaborates with orchestras, composers, and musicians to present films that provoke curiosity and a sense of wonder about the Earth and the Universe. His Science & Symphony films have been presented in 200 concerts and have reached a combined audience of more than 400,000 people in concert halls, museums, and lecture halls spanning more in 15 countries.

In this talk Salgado will use clips from his films to take us on a virtual tour of the Universe. We will travel from the Subarctic North to the South Pole and from the Earth’s orbit to galaxies far away and learn about the nature of these fantastic places!
