Teaching Science Fiction to Science and Technology Majors.
Diaconoff, Ted
This paper describes the content and implementation of a course designed to teach science and technology majors about science fiction. Although many students had expressed little interest in the imaginative world of literature, the scientific content of the texts used attracted their attention and legitimized their involvement in something outside the realm of "hard facts." Some of the books used in the course included H.G. Wells's "The Time Machine," Isaac Asimov's "I, Robot," C.S. Lewis's "Perelandra," and Ray Bradbury's "Martian Chronicles." (KS)
