Foundations of Science

Michigan State University
Class Start: 2013-05-13
Level: beginner
Go to the class
Have you ever wondered if aliens are visiting the earth? Or if ESP or Astrology really work? Maybe you have seen pictures and wonder if the Loch Ness monster or Bigfoot could be real? Should worry about artificial sweeteners or getting your kids vaccinated? Even though they are different kinds of questions, all of them can be addressed using critical thinking and informed by the scientific method. The Foundations of Science course is designed to give you the tools to evaluate those claims and to give the average non-scientist a foundation for understanding the world around them.
