After delivering a keynote last week in Roanoke on the topics of science and reason, exuberance, liberty, rejuvenation and improved men and women with ample references to Robert Green Ingersoll, I was ready for the first episode of a new Netflix series that complements all these qualities, namely, Bill Nye Saves the World. Dr. William Vaughan, professor of Philosophy, and Dr. Jeff Weidenhamer, trustees’ distinguished professor of Chemistry, organized the lecture and are currently teaching the Science as a Cultural Force course.

We’d also look to add more maths into the mix, which though it falls outside the focus on evidence-based science, where mathematics news is concerned, there are considerably fewer sites that generate anything close to what might make for compelling reading by a general audience.
I have always been a fan of science fiction films of the 1950’s and 1960’s it’s fun to look back and see how they envisioned our future. The joint National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) Ecology and Evolution of Infectious Diseases (EEID) Program funded the study.

A number of our Postgraduate Food Science students have received recognition at Food Science events.
Engine parts have already undergone numerous tests and the first experimental launch is expected in 2016. This State-funded scholarship program currently supports 23 Ashland science students (including Isabella, Hannah and Corey found in these pictures). At the $100 Supporting Membership level, $50 is a tax-deductible donation to the Society, making a significant impact on our ability to champion science literacy, education and innovation.
