Our Next Book Giveaway: Archimedes to Hawking

Jason English

At various points during our month of book giveaways, I've asked you to channel your inner architect, misleading medical consultant and quizmaster. Tonight, you've been hired to teach a class at mental_floss_university. The big question—what would you teach? (Don't say "Math" or "History." We want you to be painfully specific, and include why you're qualified in this subject.)

You're playing for a copy of Archimedes to Hawking: Laws of Science and the Great Minds Behind Them, which seems like a book mental_floss_university freshmen would all have to read. We'll compile a mini-course catalogue and pick a winner on Monday. (You've still got time to send in your celebrity photos.)

There's no such thing as mental_floss_university (yet), but our Tuition Giveaway is absolutely real. We're giving away five $10,000 scholarships. All you have to do is tell us, in 750 words or less, why you should win. But you have to tell us by January 31st. We look forward to reading your entries!
