Course Description

Have you ever wondered how scientists can solve a murder by analyzing clues at a crime scene?  How a 400,000-kilogram airplane can fly through the air?  Or, how devices such as the cell phone and the computer have transformed the way we communicate?  If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, this course will answer these questions and many more.  In this course students will develop an understanding of the connection between science and technology and how they impact society and the environment.  The thought-provoking topics and engaging multimedia will capture students’ imaginations, hold their attention, and arouse an interest in the study of science and technology.
