In the Footsteps of Newton to Screen at Film Festival
The educational documentary from Hanover College will screen at the Utopia Film Festival on Saturday, October 20 in Greenbelt, Maryland.
The students follow in the footsteps of Sir Isaac Newton, from his early life on the farm at Woolsthorpe Manor, to his student days in Grantham and academic life in Cambridge, to his final years in London. They find that to study Newton is not only to study math, physics, and astronomy, but also theology, chemistry, economics, philosophy, and the connections between Newton's story and their own lives and futures.
