Course Description

Students will consider how to have better conversations about science in their daily lives. We’ll explore current scientific and health concepts, such as climate change, vaccines, animal behavior, and the Nobel Prize, through podcasts and other popular media. Our goal is to more effectively talk about these topics with our friends and families to increase scientific understanding in our society. Join a community space to connect about what’s happening in science and how we can share how science improves our lives and environment with others.
