Course Schedule – Spring 2024 / Science / WATER

Coordinators: Judy Weis, Pete Weis

Water. Something we interact with every day. We wash in it, cook with it, put our wastes into it, swim in it and travel in boats on it. In cold winter it freezes and we can skate or ski or sled on it. We shelter from it when it falls down from the sky. “Bad weather” usually involves it.

Too little and there’s a drought, too much and there’s a flood. Our bodies are mostly made of it. It was essential in the development of human civilization. Lots of plants and animals live in it. Life in water is very different from on land. Although this class started as mostly science, it is interdisciplinary and will include the arts, literature, law, and history.
