Nothing but praise! Easy to follow, wealth of information, clear explanations, no pressure activities. I found the timelines particularly helpful. I thoroughly enjoyed this course, and look forward to continue the follow up course. Thanks, Leslie and Mary!

It is a fresh approach to study human development - different from the point of view of classical Philosophy. It gives an insight into how scientific knowledge came to support (and often change) philosophical theories.

I heartily recommend anyone who is perhaps a little puzzled in understanding where and how the sciences developed, then this is the course to take.

I really enjoyed this course. It has tied together many strands which I have learned over the years. The course stimulated me to further research some of the many issues raise. Thank you.

I have now completed Science 1, my next adventure is Science 2, the writer, Mr Leslie Dale, has done great work, thank you so much for your challenging papers. A paper I would love to see and do is Medical Science; Maybe one day.

I enjoyed the course and definitely will be doing the following courses. The information was very thorough and easy to read and digest. The participants had limited involvement on the discussion board, including myself which was a shame but will try to do better in the next course. I would recommend the course and the course leader. Mary has been the first one to successfully encourage me to comment on the discussion board !

I enjoyed it so much I have encouraged my three sisters who are all English teachers to enrol and fill in a few gaps in our education. The time lines made the ancient history so clear. I was not aware that the Muslims were leading scientists.

First time I have done an online course, even though it was self paced I found it very informative. It is amazing how much one can learn from the knowledge of others. Great course, will try more, many thanks to Leslie.

What a fantastic course! I am almost finished Unit 9 having spent the last few months absorbing the amazing amount of information and knowledge it has presented to me. Needless to say, I look forward to the uninterrupted few hours I can spend several times a week going through this material. My notebook is full of summarised facts and comments - something I do as I find it helpful - such is the range of scientific information you have covered. I was surprised to find it all started with the arrival of homo sapiens and once launched into this unit, I wondered if I could persevere long enough to encounter the Hadron Collider.

I enjoyed and appreciated this course. It absorbed much of my time and led me into areas of research that made it so worthwhile. I cannot praise the efforts of writers of the U3A courses highly enough. These courses are a boon and a benefit to those of us, retired and unwilling to let our minds fall into a vacuum! I look forward to doing more of them.

The comments below from student to Dr Leslie Dale, Course Writer. \\Leslie, I have just completed the History of Science Course compiled by you. The course material is excellent and the presentation is first class. As a Tutor to the U3A SATH Faculty I appreciate the immense amount of background work you must have undertaken to prepare this course and these days sadly, this frequently goes unremarked. I shall look forward in going over the course material in greater detail throughout the summer holiday period. I appreciate your effort on behalf of U3A students.\\

This has been the sixth course I have completed. I am so grateful for the effort of your tutors and support staff. It has added so much to my retirement years.

Thank you Leslie for the ongoing science study you have provided. I have been both fascinated and emerged at the range of material provided. For anyone who missed out on science studies, I urge you - do this course. The online presentation opened up many areas of interest.
