This project offers a possible model for a freshmen seminar. It re-evaluates the current STS-1207 course, Introduction to the Psycho-Sociology of Science, and builds upon studies of cognitive and personality styles to introduce the politics and social workings of science. The project discusses how the course would be suitable for a freshmen seminar because the in-depth study of opposing personalities within past and current scientific discovery would prepare students for the group oriented project based curriculum at WPI.
