Recent Revolutions in Science

ALL1378-Z     Second 6 Weeks     Thursdays 9:00-10:20     Start Date 24-Oct
Zoom       Limit 25

This is a course about history and discovery, big-time changes in science in your lifetime.  The focus will be on biology (molecular biology in particular), but there are other discoveries dating to the last half of the 20th century I intend to cover, including plate tectonics and astronomy. Class participation is encouraged: volunteers with interests and background in diverse areas are invited to participate in giving presentations on topics of their choosing in consultation with the instructor. Short articles and videos will be suggested each week.
