Question description

Science in American Culture (Due: Wednesday, November 18, 2015)


The most important reason to take a science course in college is to learn about general science topics that will be a part of the news you read, the votes you are asked to make, and the decisions you will face related to your personal and family health care. Science is all around us, and is even pervasive in our American pop culture: movies, books, video games, etc. Select one of the science based pop culture examples listed below. Watch or read, and then locate a current (two years old, or less) science article that relates to the topic discussed in your novel/movie. You will write a 3 page discussion that summarizes the major points of your chosen media, discusses the article you chose, explains the connection between the article and your media selection, and explains the relevance of this topic to modern-day American citizens. Media choices:

·  Jurassic Park (novel, author Michael Crichton)

·  The Cobra Event (novel, author Richard Preston)

·  My Sister’s Keeper (novel, Jodi Piccoult)

·  Unwind (novel, Neal Shusterman)

·  GATTACA (movie, release date: 1997)

·  Avatar (movie, release date: 2009)

·  The Island (movie, release date: 2005)
