Science, Public Policy, and Media Production:
Science is the study of the natural world through observation and measurement. Public policy concerns constitutions, legislative acts (laws), and judicial decisions (court rulings). In other words, science concerns the study of natural laws, while public policy concerns social laws. This class is about enabling our current scientific understanding to better inform our social laws, on both the State and Federal levels, through media production: song recordings, Youtube videos, public service announcements, etc. Maximum 12 students. Teachers: Mr. Jonathan and Mr. Killebrew
