Course Overview
This course was invented by Bruce Hubbard and focused on asking and scientifically answering questions about physical phenomena
Scientists answer questions by distilling a big idea down into simple questions that can be explored through experimentation. There are two broad categories of science: confirmatory and exploratory. Confirmatory science tests a particular hypothesis, whereas exploratory science searches for a hypothesis. Final projects will seek to test or explore a question. Students will discover the scientific method as a process that can be used to drive their artistic and design practice or be driven by their artistic and design practice.
