Highly-skilled professionals work alongside high school and college students to train a new generation of socially-aware and truth-loving change agents. 

 

POP EU FILM SERIES

One of the most effective methods of introducing the science of eugenics and its theories both past and present, is through popular television and film.  Using an array of works from The Graduate and Orphan Black to Claudine and A soldier's Story, Acumen introduces the concepts of hereditarianism, innate characteristics, social bias to both young and matures audiences.
