Meet the Scientist Lecture Series

Support Lectures

This program promotes (1) the pursuit of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), and (2) encourages communication between scientists and residents of the communities in which they live and work.

The series is produced in collaboration with the Jupiter Environmental Research and Field Studies Academy (JERFSA), a four-year academic program focusing on ecological principles and processes, environmental awareness, field studies and research, critical thinking and leadership skills.

Each season runs from October through April, with all events held at the Jupiter High School auditorium from 7 to 9 pm. Thanks to the support of the Rotary Club Jupiter-Tequesta and the Jupiter Inlet District, all lectures are free and open to the public.

For more information, contact Dr. Stefan Harzen.

Ocean of Notes Concert Series

Support Concerts

Science and music are actually closely related. It is the interaction of sounds, tempo, and pitch that creates music, just as facts and knowledge, combined with imagination and conjecture produces new scientific discoveries. And if you listen, you can hear dolphins, whales and a myriad of living things, together with currents and tides, performing a symphony that reverberates throughout the marine environment.

Our concerts are held at local venues, which included in the past the Rinker Room at the Kravis Center, the Borland Center for the Performing Arts, the Atlantic Theater, and the Performing Arts Academy of Jupiter.

Performers included blues slide guitar genius Roy Rogers and the Delta Rhythm Kings, guitar virtuoso Richard Gilewitz, Grammy nominated instrumentalist Tim May, a master on guitar, banjo and mandolin, Gretchen Priest-May, an amazing fiddle player of equal caliber, violinist, composer and former member of the Australian folk rock group The Sundowners Mark Russell, songwriter Gove Scrivenor, and Bert Lams, member of the world famous California Guitar Trio.
