S317: Fact or Fiction? The Truth in Old Wives' Tales and the Lies Told by Science in Splash Fall 2020 (Nov. 08, 2020)
This class will evaluate the validity of "old wives' tales" and also take a look at various scientific failures throughout history. Our goal is to understand the importance of being critical about our sources of knowledge while also maintaining an open mind when it comes to scientific methods and different types of evidence. The topics discussed will provide a broader picture of how science relates to our cultural values.
