Cosmology
Cosmology is the study of the Universe as a whole – what it is, what's in it, how it came to be, and what the ultimate fate of it is. Today, Cosmologists study things like the Big Bang, Dark Energy, and the shape of the Universe. There are also cosmologies from other cultures and parts of the world, which describe the heavens in relation to their view of the cosmos. In this class, you'll learn about both aspects of cosmology – see how different cultures represent their cosmologies through exhibits from around the Museum, and learn about how scientists study the Universe and what we have learned (and what we don't know!).

Science Research Courses - Intensive courses that serve as pre-requisites for the Science Research
Mentoring Program and are offered for free. Science Research courses are open to students in 10-12th grade.

Culture, Language & Society
This course is a pre-requisite for the Museum’s Science Research Mentoring Program (SRMP) in the
biology and anthropology tracks. You may not always be aware of it, but culture is everywhere. Culture is made up of the language you speak, the food you eat, the clothes you wear, your religion, your gender, your ethnicity, your nationality, and even expectations of how you should behave. These dimensions of our lives determine how each of us understands the world around us, how we relate to family, friends, and strangers, and how each of them relates to us. Culture is the lens through which humans see the world and it exists in almost endless diversity throughout the world. In this course, we will explore how anthropologists study cultural differences in health, gender, economics, religion, and communication to better understand humankind. The course is offered free-of-charge.
