Established by UNESCO in 2001, World Science Day for Peace and Development is celebrated on 10 November each year. 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. However, not many know that mind science has been around with us for a long, long time.
Panel and paper proposals on any subject in political science are welcome, starting May 10, 2017. Longtime physics/math/astro teacher and curmudgeon; retired from NJ in 2004 and CT in 2016. While kids might not understand the exact techniques involved with DNA and others, every kid knows about fingerprints.
Science will agree that energy always flows from a higher source to a lower source. Basic science about animals involves ant farms, which kids can build themselves with a jar, some dirt and ants. The branch of science that deals with personality development is certainly a step forward in that directional as it takes into account the science of mind, the problems faced and the ways of coming out of these problems, successfully.
Published in the February 1, 2017 issue of Science of the Total Environment, the study was coauthored by Jeffrey Weidenhamer (Trustees’ Distinguished Professor of Chemistry), Meghann Fitzpatrick (Senior Biology major), Alison Biro (Toxicology ’15), Peter Kobunski (Biochemistry ’15), Michael Hudson (Associate Professor of Geology), Rebecca Corbin (Professor of Chemistry), and Perry Gottesfeld (OK International).
Furthermore, multi-media resources should be utilized to help make science come alive like watching renowned science programs on television or on DVD like PBS’s NOVA and playing interactive games on the Internet like those found at Science News for Kids.
