The effect of Science in our society is profound, subtle and sometimes shocking. Its rich history has given us insights into our place in the universe, revealed our relationship with other species on this planet, and has yielded technologies that permeate our lives. Science is a way of understanding natural phenomena, a way of seeking patterns in the smallest components of the atom to the grand expansion of the cosmos. We will cover topics such as Evolution, Astronomy, Modern Genetics, Ecosystems, Mass Extinctions, Extraterrestrial Life, the Atom, the Environment, Relativity, Plagues, and the bizarre world of the Quantum. Our studies will touch upon the lives of famous scientists such as Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, Darwin, Mendel, and Einstein, and we will find that at the heart of their great insights lay a simple, understandable idea.
