Series Details

About

So many scientists shaped today's world. Some of which we have studied in schools or learned in books. But we hardly understand science from their perspective. How did they start?
They were pioneers that struggled to prove their theories. So in this series, we can discuss science from their perspective. How were they discovered? What were the struggles? We will discuss the young and old discoveries. Not only their works but sometimes their life alone are so inspiring that it will be a shame if we gloss over them. Hence, in some sessions we will about their early life, education and their life beyond work.
Occasionally, we will discuss findings that won a noble prize or questionable ethics/practices that led to some of the most significant discoveries.
All are welcome !!! There will be a very lively discussion at the end of each session when we will discuss ethics and why it gained popularity or not? We will discuss its potential use in the future.
Note: New sessions will be added as the series progress. Each session will have a different context so, you can join in any of the sessions.
Also, I am looking for tutors/learners who will cohost with me or present their favourite topics in some sessions.

About the Tutor

I am an MS graduate (majored in Biological Sciences). At schoolhouse, I mostly tutor in biology; a subject most people would find as factual rather logical. I hope as a tutor in biology I could help find the logic behind the facts. In my spare time, I like to dribble with words or doodle with a pen. I am glad to be a part of the Schoolhouse community. I met so many amazing people and hope to see you in one of my sessions/series.
