If you're an adult who is interested in science, this course is for you! Science 101 provides an introductory science education to adults who have historically had difficulty accessing university. Students are introduced to a wide variety of topics, including natural disasters, outer space, plants, and more. Classes are taught by University of British Columbia professors and graduate students. There are no pre-requisites for this course.
Science 101 will be taking place in-person again in the Summer of 2023. Student information sessions will be taking place in the community in the coming months. Dates, times and locations will be posted soon.
