In this Science Forward course, we will focus on scientific thinking in the context of a variety of different fields of science, especially on the specific skills that allow one to have a good Science Sense, which includes being able to distinguish Science from non-Science, collecting and processing data into knowledge, and questioning and evaluating scientific information.
