The advantages, assignments, course material, and student feedback for an interdisciplinary learning community between a physics course and science fiction literature course will be discussed. This work was published in The Physics Teacher May 2016.
Educators will learn how to implement an interconnection between physics and science fiction in such a way that studying works of science fiction can enhance and deepen learning of physics. Learning physics can enrich our understanding and appreciation of science fiction literature.
