Science in the Cinema: Mind of a Rampage Killer
Date: April 16th
Time: 11:10 am - 12:10 pm EDT
Program Description: What makes a person walk into a theater or a church or a classroom full of students and open fire? What combination of circumstances compels a human being to commit the most inhuman of crimes? Can science in any way help us understand these horrific events and provide any clues as to how to prevent them in the future? As the nation tries to understand the tragic events at Newtown, NOVA correspondent Miles O’Brien separates fact from fiction, investigating new theories that the most destructive rampage killers are driven most of all, not by the urge to kill, but the wish to die. Could suicide–and the desire to go out in a media-fueled blaze of glory–be the main motivation? How much can science tell us about the violent brain? Most importantly, can we recognize dangerous minds in time—and stop the next Newtown? Join Dr. John Kelp, Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology (In Psychiatry) at the New York Psychiatric Institute to explore the question "Can science help us understand why some people commit horrific acts of mass murder?'

Science in the Cinema: Race for the Double Helix
Dates/Times: April 17th 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT | May 21 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Program Description: Join Dr. Chi-hua Chiu, Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Kent State University, for a discussion of the scientific, political and ethical issues related to the discovery of the double helix as depicted in the film The Race for the Double Helix. The discovery involved the rivalries of the two teams of scientists attempting to discover the nature of DNA, Francis Crick & James D. Watson at Cambridge University and Maurice Wilkins & Rosalind Franklin at King's College London. The Race for the Double Helix also depicts the role of women in Science at that time. Students should be familiar with the movie and/or the basis for the controversy, and should prepare questions ahead of time for Dr. Chiu.

Dates/Times: April 24th 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT | May 28th 11:00 am - 12:00pm EDT
Program Description: Join Dr. Chi-hua Chiu, Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Kent State University, for a discussion about the origins of life. NOVA’s Origins: How Life Began provides the basis for the discussion. How did things go from non-living to living? How did it go from something that could not reproduce to something that could? Do we really know? Is there a recipe for life?
