Get to the bottom of such hot issues as climate change, GMOs, and vaccines in a new class designed to cultivate your inner skeptic.
You’ll learn how scientists disagree on some of the most hotly debated issues, how to separate science fact and fiction, and how to tell when science is being manipulated for political purposes.
Making Sense of Science (GS 112) is a new lab science class that combines biology, chemistry, and physics with political discussion. The class is new for spring term.
“I’m really passionate about this field and about creating skeptical citizens,” said Professor Dale Champion. “This class is something I’ve been working on for a long time. I can’t wait to get into these really powerful topics.”
GS112 is offered Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 10 a.m. The lab portion is held at 9 a.m. Thursdays. The class qualifies as a general education elective and satisfies lab science requirements.
Spring term classes start March 31.
