S298: Time Travel: Movies, Myths, and Reality in Splash Spring 13 (Apr. 06, 2013)
How close are we to time travel? This course explores time travel as depicted by the movie industry and theorists. These ideas are then analyzed from a scientific lens grounded in physics.

S136: Could we be killed by an army of nano-robots? in Splash Fall 12 (Oct. 20, 2012)
In Michael Crichton's novel "Prey", a research facility is swarmed by a solar-powered,self-sufficient, reproducing and evolving army of nano-robots. Could Crichton's fiction become reality? The course tackles this question (in a non-intensive manner) from a perspective grounded in physics as well as a sample of other scientific fields.
