Science, Culture and Theology Group
Asociación Española Ciencia y Cultura (AECyC)
This group consists of a delegation of academicians from a range of fields including physics, philosophy, chemistry, civil engineering, hydrology, engineering, theology and astrophysics coming together for dialogue and the creation of broad outreach materials to disseminate science-faith themes into educational spheres. Outreach efforts are aimed at high school teachers, professors and students in Madrid and bordering regions of Avila, Segovia, Guadalajara, Toledo, and Cuenca. The group is creating appropriate materials – including a website with e-books, information booklets, and illustrated, animated CD/Power Point presentations – for use by teachers of science, history, and culture. This material will be invaluable for use in lectures, informal talks, colloquia, and presentations to senior high school students and university students alike. Topics and themes cover the intersection of faith with physics, chemistry, mathematics, geology, biology, physiology, astronomy and cosmology – through the title “God and Scientists”. Matching funds for this new program are provided by the Asociación Española Ciencia y Cultura (AECyC).
