This is a new multi-level year-long science course for 2020, and the exact content will be decided based on the numbers, levels and interests of the students that sign up. Please have a read of the Course overview

We start on the largest and smallest scales - the history and development of the whole universe, what do we mean by 'Science' and how human anatomy, physiology and psychology impacts and limits our ability to investigate and understand it. How are stars and planets born, live and die? How did biological life get started. Is there anything special about us or our planet?
