New! Does Quantum Mechanics Hold the Secret to the Evolution of Life?
1 session, 2 hours
Science courses that help people understand the world around them using evidence and observations. Each topic begins with a video and ends with a discussion. Is it possible to create life out of inanimate material? Scientists say “yes”. What are the moral implications?
Instructor: Bob graduated with a BS in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer and an MSEE from the University of Connecticut. He began his career in electronic warfare at United Aircraft but eventually turned to design of spacecraft for humanitarian purposes at NASA. Bob likes to say; “Engineering made the dough, Cosmology makes me go.” His courses require no math or formal scientific training, but a good sense of humor is mandatory. Bob believes that starting a class with good jokes improves the learning process. Bob’s other passion is rock climbing, having traveled around the U.S. and Europe in its pursuit.
