The freshman seminar, “Time Capsules for Climate Change,” asks students to write about the future of humanity in the context of a changing climate. The students use emerging science to think quantitatively about the impacts of climate change and possible strategies for mitigation. They are writing four essays to be placed in time capsules and stored in Princeton’s Mudd Library until their graduation and subsequent milestone reunions.
Early in the semester, the students visited the University archives at Mudd Library (above) where they met with University Archivist Daniel Linke (at right). The course is led by Professor Emeritus Robert Socolow (rear right).
