This course applies the conceptual & practical approaches of the branches of sciences to modern topical interests. It focuses on unifying concepts and real-life examples across physics, chemistry, earth science, biology, and chemistry, earth science, biology, and astronomy. The scientific, social & practical application of the scientific astronomy. Topics for the course emphasize the development of science within the larger community, treating contemporary issues. Course topics are constructed around a general theme, inherent within current scientific thought. Themes (e.g. water, energy, human health, the environment) are chosen collaboratively by the instructors of the course each semester. The course is designed to help students better understand the intersection of scientific areas with an emphasis on practical and conceptual applications to real world phenomena.

Student Learning Outcomes of the Course:
  1. Students will demonstrate an understanding of the methods scientists use to explore natural phenomena, including observation, hypothesis development, measurement and data collection, experimentation, evaluation of evidence, and employment of mathematical analysis.
  2. Students will apply scientific data, concepts, and models in one of the natural sciences.
