This boot camp will help you to understand the relationships between humans and the things they make, from knowledge to material objects. Using methods from anthropology and other social sciences, you will ask questions about how science and culture interact, such as:

  • How did people in Bali, Indonesia invent a system for starving out pests that works more effectively than chemical pesticides?
  • How does a Tongan hospital use traditional healing methods alongside Western psychiatric medicine to help patients with depression, anxiety, and schizophrenia?
  • What did a Lakota high school student discover about the relationship between grass-fed buffalo meat and health outcomes in her community?
  • How can humans all over the world best relate with artificial intelligence and automated technologies, and who created the first automatic inventions?
  • How do people around the world hone scientific knowledge?

By attending the boot camp, you will be encouraged:

  • To think like a scientist.
  • To feel empowered to connect the knowledge that you bring to MCC with the knowledge you will learn while at MCC.
  • To connect knowledge from around the world.
