How each vote in a democracy affects the way biology functions in your everyday life

课程概况

Science plays a crucial role in your decisions as you go about your daily life. The representatives you elect and the legislation you vote on influences science legislation, limits and funding. This class will teach you fundamentals of modern biology to help you make more informed voting decisions.
As you learn the fundamentals of Biology, we’ll explore the scientific issues sparking political debate:

Evolution vs. creationism
Reactions to pandemic disease
The risks and benefits of vaccination
How extinctions impact the planet
Space exploration and the search for extraterrestrial life
Sexual behavior

We look forward to engaging course discussions about how each vote in a democracy affects the way biology functions in your everyday life.

预备知识

We will be assuming background knowledge at the level of a high school biology course. A high school chemistry course would be nice for some of the lectures, but not required. No other science background will be assumed.
