Science Fact versus Science Fiction

ID : 83929   
« back to classes page
Many adults think they don’t like science, because they were forced in school to memorize facts, versus seeing science as a way to solve problems and organize thinking. Yet everyone is affected by modern scientific discoveries. Our emphasis in these classes is to ask interesting, societally-important questions. The instructor will provide facts, highlight unknowns, and show how this information has been used or misused in modern fiction and public discussions. The debatable topics are: 1) Could altering the bacteria in your gut help you lose weight or even improve the effectiveness of certain cancer therapies? 2) Why can't we beat the flu? 3) Could scientists clone a dinosaur or a mammoth? Should they? 4) What is the purpose of science education?
