Aaron Freeman, Artist in Residence presents new content for Valentine's Day and Black History Month!

Meet Aaron Freeman, writer/producer, science commentator and funnyman. Former host of both NPR’s weekly talk show Metropolis, and WTTW’s Chicago Tomorrow, a weekly science-and-health half-hour magazine. Aaron will be sharing his take on a variety of science topics through posts and videos.

Dr. Herman Brenner White was the first African-American physicist hired by Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. He is also the first African American to have a scientific equation bear his name; the Stefansky-White Model for Neutrino Production. For Black History Month, Chicago Council on Science and Technology Artist in Residence Aaron Freeman talks with Dr. White about the role of race in his journey from rural Tuskegee, Alabama to one of the world's top physics facilities.
