The College of Central Florida’s innovative educational series, “Patriot Project: Bringing History to Life,” continues on Monday, Feb. 6, with “Science in the Colonial Period” from 12:30-1:30 p.m. at the CF Webber Center, 3001 S.W. College Road, Ocala. Mark Taylor, CF assistant professor of physical sciences, will dig into the history of science in America.
“In colonial times, even the word ‘science’ meant something else,” Taylor said. “The ‘natural philosophers’ of the time include people like Ben Franklin and we’ll look into his contributions as well as a few other early American scientists.”
The Patriot Project lectures are free and open to the public. Light refreshments and event giveaways will be provided.
