In this open course we will introduce you to science topics that we often hear about in the media and we will talk to an expert to find out more about each one of these topics. This course aims to build awareness and understanding about scientific issues that are important both locally and globally.

There are four modules that can be completed sequentially. Each module provides material to increase your understanding about a particular science topic. There is also an associated challenge for each module, which is an active task asking you to undertake an activity.

You will explore:

- Climate Change with Associate Professor Gavin Prideaux,

- Obesity with Dr Rebecca Perry,

- Stem Cells with Dr Robyn Meech and

- Genetically Modified Organisms with Dr Peter Anderson.
