Science is both a set
of insights about the nature of the universe we live in, and a tool
for developing further insights. This section of our web site contains
a set of resources developed by SII staff and associates to help
provide guidance and information for your efforts to incorporate
the insights and process of science into your worldview-building
process. Although the ideas expressed in these resources do not
necessarily reflect the ideas and positions of SII, you may find
them helpful in your process of incorporating insights from science
into your worldview. This section is (and will always be!) a work
in progress. We'll continue developing this page and its links,
as our resources permit. If you have suggestions or would like to
help develop some of the materials, please contact us. Meanwhile
use these resources to follow your own path through the information
you need to help you develop your own answers to questions about
your role in the universe.

- Cosmology class
project: In Todd's Cosmology class, which is geared for non-science
majors, the students make a final project. The project is based
on something in cosmology that captures the students' interests
and can be presented in a variety of ways. Some projects have
been a song, a skirt, a game, a poster. One group of students
made a humorous pop culture magazine Cosmology
(5.7 MB PDF) that we'd like to share with you.
