This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.
Traditional methods of teaching result in untold numbers of students turning away from science, and myriad missed opportunities to explore the beauty and mystery of the molecular level.
This course will introduce you to the most fundamental ideas of chemistry as a lens through which to view the world, and will strive to re-ignite a passion for thinking about natural phenomena. Activities will help you develop your concept of matter and the changes it undergoes. We will assume that students have little or no experience with academic science and will focus on conceptual ideas with very little math and no calculations.
Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
