Description

Rise to the challenge and take responsibility for your future. In this course students explore the nature of invention and innovation in context of the individual, culture, society, economics, environment, technology science, and sustainability among others. Case studies of innovators and inventors are studied, placing the ideas and inventions in historic context as well as considering contemporary and future implications.
