Bone up on the latest developments in science. Every Tuesday for the last forty years, The New York Times
has had an extensive section of news on scientific subjects. The current editor, David Corcoran, collects articles of 500 to 1,500 words that are newsy and timely. Topics cover a broad range of science and technology as well as health and medicine. The articles make the reader sit up and take notice by calling attention to new, surprising or underreported scientific developments. Members of the group will be asked to select, research, and lead the discussion. Our policy is that these articles mainly come from a recent Science Times
or from articles elsewhere in The New York Times
with topical scientific interest. Digital access or a print subscription to The New York Times
is required. Join us for some great discussions. No class on 11/28/19.
