Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science Featured on ‘Today’

The namesake of Water Mill resident and actor Alan Alda was recently featured on The Today Show in a segment on how Alda is using acting to help scientists explain science to the layman.

Today visited the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University and highlighted the acting and improvisation classes that the center offers.

“It’s not so easy—if you haven’t spent your life studying science—to understand what quantum physics is about, and the tendency of the people who have been studying it all their lives is to speak in the terms that they understand,” Alda told Today.
