Prosser, WA (PRWEB) July 23, 2013
Red Comet’s new online high school elective course “Great Minds in Science: Ideas for a New Generation” is launched this summer as part of the company’s broad efforts to introduce a rich mixture of brand new enrichment courses that supplement the existing curriculum. Intellectual minds have pondered about unresolved scientific questions since time immemorial. Is there life on other planets? What extremes can the human body endure? Can we solve the problem of global warming? Each generation of humans is confronted with new challenges that need to be understood first in order to be resolved. Today, scientists, explorers, and writers are working to answer all of these questions. Like Edison, Einstein, Curie, and Newton, the scientists of today are asking questions and working on problems that may revolutionize our lives and world.
This course focuses on ten of today’s greatest scientific minds. Each unit takes an in-depth look at one of these individuals, and shows how their ideas may help to shape tomorrow’s world.
