Princeton University. Freshman Seminar: Time Capsules for Climate Change.

The FRS 151: Time Capsules for Climate Change course was a freshman seminar taught by Professor Robert Socolow. For the 2017 fall semester, six freshmen thought about climate change and the impact on their futures. After extensively researching their respective topics, they each prepared a final term paper that was placed into four different sealed folders, time capsules, to be opened at their graduation, 10th reunion, 25th reunion, and 50th reunion. The entire process was an exercise in honing their analytical skills and learning how to conceptualize their near and far futures.

The students of the course are Meléa Emunah, Dana Iverson, Jason Kong, Gianna Mavica, Lauren Sanchez, and Dora Zhao. The instructors were Robert Socolow, Professor Emeritus and Senior Research Scholar, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering and Nadir Jeevanjee, a Harry Hess postdoctoral fellow in the Princeton geosciences department and also affiliated with Princeton Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences and the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory.
