Jake Brown currently attends Gulf Coast State College studying physics. As the president of GCSC CFI On Campus, he seizes every opportunity to bring science and reason to the forefront of human values.
November 9th, 2014 marked what would have been the 80th birthday of the late, great astronomer, educator, science popularizer, and wonderer Dr. Carl Sagan. Carl taught us to look up to the heavens and let our imaginations run wild. But, he also taught us to only accept conclusions about our universe that are supported by the strongest of observational evidence, and to achieve these conclusions via one of the most beautiful tools we have available to us: the self-correcting mechanism known as the scientific method.
The event with Dr. Boghossian was a big hit! With help from Gulf Coast State College's Honors Program and Student Government Association, we were able to offer free pizza and drinks to everyone preceding the presentation. Then, at 1:00 PM, Dr. Boghossian kicked off his Critical Thinking Crash Course, where he presented wonderful thinking tools for tackling many questions in life! It was very informative, and we think everyone learned a lot from it.
