Science Fiction, Science Fact

Using a science fiction narrative, participants will first explore what is science and what is its societal impact. From there, the course will build on science strengths and weaknesses for societal problem-solving. Participants will also discuss fake science and how to authenticate knowledge, with an aim to inspire those who have no education in the sciences. Join us for this highly interactive and informative class!
