About This Activity

This course will explore the last 2500 years, and the half century that succeeded it, to learn how modern science and engineering has formed from its humble origins in natural philosophy. Students will recreate the alchemical experiments of Isaac Newton and Nicolas Flamel, and analyze them with modern chemistry to examine how they worked and what was actually happening. In addition, they will recreate Mendeleev’s periodic table, and understand how similar patterns are being used to predict new subatomic particles today. They will also learn how this technology makes transmutation to gold possible! Students will explore the past work of great engineers such as Archimedes, Faraday and Da Vinci, and delve into current research such as the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science’s recent discovery of a microwave invisibility cloak. By the end of the course, students will be able to apply philosophical concepts to modern science.
