Stories: Penn State Students Study the Science and Ethics of the Gulf Oil Spill

December 9, 2010

Last summer, just months after the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill took place, Geosciences professor Timothy Bralower created a course at Penn State University Park to study the spill. But rather than focus just on the environmental impact, he reached out to the Rock Ethics Institute to create a course that would also delve into issues like corporate social responsibility and integrity. WPSU's Emily Reddy visited the class earlier this week as students gave their final reports.
