The new Origins Education Portal allows users to explore materials presented in and inspired by our exclusive scientific workshops in an online interactive format. Our first offering is about the origins of violence, presented to help us all understand the roots, evolution, and mitigation of violence.
In this latest post to the Origins Blog, United States Army combat-veteran and intern Zachary Fraedrich aims to answer questions about natural reactions to trauma and how they may be consistent throughout time.
Founded and directed by Lawrence Krauss, the Origins Project was created to explore humankind's most fundamental questions about our origins.
To tackle these questions, we bring together a diverse collection of the world’s leading scientists, scholars, and public intellectuals to discuss, and if possible create, new research opportunities associated with forefront issues ranging from the origin of the universe to the origins of life, modern humans, consciousness, culture, complex systems and technology.
We aim to serve as a resource for the public understanding of science by creating unique opportunities for experts and the general public to engage with one another, share information, and ultimately work together to address the numerous global challenges of the 21st century.
The Origins Education Portal allows users to explore materials presented in and inspired by our exclusive scientific workshops. Curated by leading experts, researchers and world renowned scholars who participated in our events, we will make available a growing one-of-a-kind archive of information of use for teachers, students, and the general public.
We regularly bring scholars and public intellectuals to ASU for extended periods, and are excited to welcome 2015-2016 Origins Project Distinguished Visiting Professors Peter Singer, and Nobel Laureates, Frank Wilczek and Sidney Altman.
