Language (Interview with Caleb Gordon)

An episode of Sci-Section

By Sci-Section
Hosts: Kian Yousefi Kousha & Sherry Chen

From time to time, we might forget the reason behind studying sciences. Science is not just about chemical titrations or DNA transcription. Rather, it is about enhancing the quality of our life.

Sci-Section wants to talk about applied aspects of science, something that you can apply it to your day to day life, and actually care about.
This includes information from various fields of science such as nutrition, health, psychology, etc. Catch us live on CFMU 93.3 Wednesdays at 6pm.
