STS.050 (The History of MIT) is a class I took spring 2010 in STS (History) with Prof. Smith and Mindell. Lectures covered MIT's influence on technology and how technology influenced the shaping of MIT. This was the first term the class was offered.

Overall Grade for the Class: B+

Grades based on reflections, participation, and essays.



Unfortunately these are all copyright restricted, so I will not post them. See the syllabus in the OneNote notebook for a list of readings
