CourseGraphic 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. About half concern general topics and the other half are on health and medicine. The first few paragraphs answer the question “Why are you telling me this now?” The articles make the reader sit up and take notice by calling attention to new, surprising or underreported scientific developments. A recent issue of Science Times contained articles on “Russian Rocket Fails, but two Astronauts Return,” “Most White Americans’ DNA Can Be Identified Through Genealogy Databases,” and “Cats versus Rats? In New York, the Rats Win.” Each week the group will review the current Science Times to select articles for in-depth discussion the following week. Members of the group will be encouraged to select, research, and lead the discussion of one of the selected articles. Digital access or a print subscription to The New York Times is required. Join us for some great discussions.
