Topics in Science
Compare offerings and share your lists with others.
This program will provide you an opportunity to improve your writing, academic reading, mathematics, library research skills, and help you navigate Evergreen. All of these things will be accomplished through an exploration of multiple current topics in science, with a focus on chemistry. We will learn about some of the science behind each topic and delve deeper into how science connects to both issues in society, and issues in social justice. Many of our topics will be viewed as questions to explore. A few examples of topics we may cover include the following: What nerve agent poisoned the Russian ex-spy that was living in England? Why is it so hard to view polar bears with thermal imaging cameras? Are scientists detained by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement? Can vaccines be made to fight against addictive drugs?
Lectures, workshops, seminars, and both individual and group projects will be a part of this program.
This offering will prepare you for careers and advanced study in:
sciences, social sciences, humanities, education, health care, and mathematics.
