Careful Science, LLC is the brainchild of industrial physicist and businessman Steve Ferrier. This new company works to educate scientifically-interested laypeople and others in the methods, logic and principles Science uses. In the process, we have a blast displaying the jawdropping beauty of the large and small universe as Science has revealed it so effectively in the modern age.
As you will see throughout this educational website, we are pro-Science from start to finish, while practicing positive, constructive analysis of the discipline. Mr. Ferrier is well-suited to this role, as a lifelong student of science and a career practitioner of scientific method and applied physics in his decades of work in the semiconductor industry. We believe this approach greatly benefits both the scientific community and the science-interested public at large.
Careful Science, LLC offers a service of educational presentations at your location that cover the kinds of topics you'll find on this website. Some specific talks:
· What A Universe!
A guided tour from Earth's wonders through the biggest, most beautiful and most mysterious parts of the Universe
· The Noise That Won the Nobel Prize
The fascinating discovery and extremely-puzzling character of the universe's Cosmic Microwave Background signal
· Let's Determine To Free The Will!
A congenial but unequivocating treatment of one of the oldest scientific controversies, determinism vs. free will.
Talks generally run about ninety minutes, but can be fit within an hour if time is limited. Where possible and suitable, Mr. Ferrier may facilitate audience discussions on the presentation topic as part of the talk. For purposes of presentation quality, we normally provide our own audio-visual equipment setup. Facilities will need to accommodate our setup, so please contact us for details. Available talks and content may change without notice.
