ANNANDALE-ON-HUDSON, N.Y.— Bard College president Leon Botstein makes a return appearance on The Colbert Report with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday, October 5. Dr. Botstein discusses Bard’s Citizen Science Program.
To link to the interview, go to:
The Citizen Science Program is an intensive introduction to the sciences for all first-year undergraduate students, beginning in January 2011. Stemming from Bard’s recent efforts to revitalize science education within the context of the liberal arts, the innovative program is designed to take science learning beyond the laboratory and give students the tools, attitudes, and motivation to use science and mathematics concepts in their daily lives. The Citizen Science Program, required of all students in their first year at Bard, will be held over a three-week intersession period each January.
