Inventing the Future (W)

Summer Session 2021: June 1-June 24

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. In light of this exploration and study, the students are challenged to develop their own creative proposal for new innovations or inventions. Not simply a refinement, but a creative innovation and invention, and then to consider and analyze the implications and ramifications of their idea.
