“Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death,” said the famous physicist Albert Einstein–and one of the 150-plus Nobel Prize-winning scientists who has authored a feature article in Scientific American. If you feel inspired by Einstein’s drive for lifelong learning, you may like to know you have some support in the new Professional Learning online courses offered by Scientific American and the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering.

The newest offerings are on the “Mysteries of the Universe” (taught by Don Lincoln, who wrote our May 2013 cover story, “The Inner Life of Quarks.”) and “Transportation Engineering.” You can find full details of the courses here. To learn when we have new offerings as they are added, you can also sign up for our mailing list.

You say you’d like to share your knowledge and teach a course yourself? Great, we welcome your proposals.
