Science Forward is a seminar that explores the nature of science itself and models the way scientists think and work. The seminar is interdisciplinary; it features a wide variety of physical and life sciences so that students may practice the skills common to all sciences. In this seminar, students will often analyze issues in science and technology that have an impact on contemporary New York.
Students will attend the opening data collection event for all sophomores, the BioBlitz, which is a 24-hour species diversity survey in NYC. Students will then use these data to conduct their own original research projects and present their results at a poster conference at the end of the semester.
