Ethics in Science: 2010 Awards Program
The Center for Ethics in Science and Technology invited senior division 2010 Greater San Diego Science and Engineering Fair participants to apply their interest and skills in science to address the ethical dimensions of their work.
The awards were presented at the June 2nd Exploring Ethics program at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center by Dr. Tate Hurvitz. Dr. Hurvitz holds a Ph.D. in English, with an emphasis on the historical relationships between science and literature. He currently teaches literature and composition in Grossmont College’s interdisciplinary learning communities program, Project Success. As part of that work, he has designed and teaches a joint course linking Composition with Introduction to Scientific Thought.
In addition to his teaching work, he also serves as a member of the advisory board for the California Learning Communities Consortium (CLCC). He is active at the regional level training and collaborating with faculty from San Diego campuses for Cal-PASS, working to improve curricular alignment among regional high schools, community colleges, and four-year universities.
