Beginning in 2023, the Adult Learners Seminars will explore science history from modern perspectives and consider the impact that modern science has on our daily lives. Designed for people with limited time but limitless curiosity, these multi-session courses will be taught in small groups to foster discussion and an open exchange of ideas. Course instructors will include notable historians of science, individuals engaged in current research, and emerging young scientists whose work is pushing the boundaries of scientific knowledge. Course topics may range from a look back at the world in which Copernicus lived and worked, to a study of the American robot, to the history of books and printing, and a consideration of what we hope to learn about the creation of the universe from the images captured by the James Webb Space Telescope. Course topics will vary from season to season which means that the opportunities to learn will be endless.
