Kaplan SC250 unit 8 final project

Science in the MediaThere is nothing like reading a good book
or watching a great movie for a little escapism and entertainment. With
all of the television channels out there and access to the internet, you
can watch just about anything you want at any time. In Unit 2, you
talked about the science involved with technology, but in this
Assignment, you are going to turn the tables and delve into how the
media portrays science.How does a pop culture portrayal of
science and scientists impact the average person’s view of what science
is and how research is conducted? Can what is presented by the media
affect how the general populace views a particular research field? What
might the long-term impacts of such a depiction be? These are just a few
questions that you will reflect upon in this Assignment.Your paper should address the following questions:When
you hear the word “scientist” what do you envision? Which famous people
or characters from the media come into your mind? What characteristics
do they have in common? Discuss at least three characteristics of your
vision of a scientist.Has your image of what a scientist does
and how they look changed over time? If so, how has this changed and
what influenced you?Are fictional scientists usually the
heroes, villains, or a combination of the two? Provide at least two
detailed examples to support your position.How is science
portrayed in fictional media (television shows, movies, music, books,
etc.)? Is it seen as a positive, negative, or neutral force in the
world? Give specific examples supporting your position.Do you
think the portrayal of scientists in the various forms of media
influences how society views people in this profession? Why, or why not?Can
the portrayal of science in media influence how certain research and
technology is viewed, and accepted, by the general public (e.g.,
cloning)?Your Final Project should be written in an essay
format, with an introduction and conclusion. The paper will require you
to include details from research including the course materials and
sources you locate on your own. Use APA format to cite your sources of
