'The Science of Mythbusters'

January 23rd, 2017


In the "The Science of Mythbusters," Professor Joshua Shaevitz and 15 students are examining how scientific research is done, from identifying real-world problems and getting funding to creating experiments and analyzing evidence. Influenced by the popular cable TV show, this freshman seminar focuses on the ways in which scientists approach real-world problems using the scientific method. Working within the framework of skeptical inquiry, the 15 students in the class engage in discussion and analysis on the practices of science, including how experiments are designed, the continuous cycle of hypothesis and testing, and the imaginative solutions that are developed for practical situations.
