Primary Instructor:

This course serves as an introduction to the tools that are vital for pursuing further science-based work in German — practical or academic. Recently, one of the reasons why students have taken this course has been to prepare themselves for summer internships available with German companies or for study abroad in technical and scientific fields.

In addition to reading various scientific articles, we will go on excursions to the Hands on Museum and the Exhibit Museum of Natural History; students will have the opportunity to present some fun experiments in groups; there will be an elementary math lesson; etc. In addition, we will pause along the way to consider the nature of science and the cultural values that can underlie it, as well as the ethical implications that a rapidly increasing amount of technology and knowledge has on our society today. The necessary vocabulary and grammar will be provided along the way.

Course Requirements:

Grades will be based on participation, homework, quizzes, presentations/projects, and exams.

Intended Audience:

No background in math or science is assumed.
