Summer Seminar 2010 004.jpgThe 2011 Summer Seminars for college juniors, seniors and graduate students is an intensive 9-day summer learning opportunity in Seattle, July 8-16.

These seminars are designed for outstanding and motivated students who seek a deeper understanding of science and its implications for society. Past alumni credit the seminar with giving them focus and inspiration for their research, as well as a place to network and receive the support and mentoring they need to equip themselves for the rewarding but difficult work ahead.

This year, in addition to the seminar focusing on ID in the natural sciences, the Center for Science and Culture announces the new C. S. Lewis Fellows Program on Science and Society, which will explore the growing impact of science on politics, economics, social policy, bioethics, theology, and the arts.

The CSC Seminar on Intelligent Design in the Natural Sciences will explore cutting-edge ID work in fields such as molecular biology, biochemistry, embryology, developmental biology, paleontology, computational biology, ID-theoretic mathematics, cosmology, physics, and the history and philosophy of science. This seminar is open to students who intend to pursue graduate studies in the natural sciences or the philosophy of science. (Click here for details and to apply.)

The C. S. Lewis Fellows Program is an inspiration from the work of its namesake, particularly The Abolition of Man and That Hideous Strength, where Lewis foresaw the dangers of both scientism and technocracy. (Click here for details and to apply.)

Discovery Institute will pay expenses for students who are accepted into these programs (travel, lodging, meals, books and other course materials). Applications will be accepted until April 22, 2011, but earlier applications may receive priority consideration.

If you're not a student, please consider forwarding this information on to the students you know who may be interested.
