About This Course

Published 9/2016 English

Course Description

The English word: "Galaxy" comes from the Greek word: "Galactia" meaning milk, and that's why we call our galaxy: The Milky Way! There are tons of ways that science collided with language, culture,  and politics, and some of them are fascinating! In this course, we cover some of the most interesting points in history, and see how they were caused by science and technology. This course is for anyone who needs inspiration, wants to learn about science and history, or for anyone who likes to think amazing thoughts. This course will teach you about inventions in the past, and see how they can help us to learn about inventions that someday YOU could produce in the future! The course is simply 11 videos, each ranging from 1 - 7 minutes in length, for a total of approximately 40 minutes of course content. There are no additional materials, and most topics are simple to understand. Scientific terms such as "X-rays" and "electrons" are used, but are explained for the purposes of the point of the video, and so it should not be difficult for anyone to understand. It is more like the story of history and innovation rather than a science course, and so no prior scientific or mathematical experience is required.

What are the requirements?

  • No special materials or software is required.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Tell the story of how infamous discoveries were made. This will give students a very clear understanding of how our current world was shaped from history.

Who is the target audience?

  • This course is suited for anyone who loves history, and wants to learn about the latest technology of the future. This course will not include difficult assignments, and does not require any prior experience in science, math, or history.
  • This course is not suited for anyone who wants to learn university-standardized chemistry.
