Course Schedule – Spring 2024 / Science / SCIENCE AND SCIENTISTS

Coordinators: Jim Brook, Steve Allen, Judy Weis

The dictionary defines science as “any system of knowledge that is concerned with the physical world and its phenomena and that entails unbiased observations and systematic experimentation.”

In general, science involves a pursuit of knowledge covering general truths or the operations of fundamental laws.

This course covers a wide range of scientific topics — and the stories of the women and men who have in the past or are now engaged in the pursuit of knowledge about the world in which we live. No prior acquaintance with the subject of any class is required. An active interest will do. Presenters are committed to making the class understandable to all.
