In the Footsteps of Newton
"In the Footsteps of Newton" follows the inspirational journey of a group of Hanover College students as they go on a quest to learn about one of the most famous people in history, Sir Isaac Newton. They follow in his footsteps, 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. Each step of the way, they experience the dramatic change in Newton’s life.
The documentary is the project of two Hanover professors and filmed by Hanover students studying documentary production. The students in Elizabeth Winters' video class focused on the life changing experiences of the students in Nancy Rodgers' math history class as they follow Newton's life journey in England. Both courses were part of Hanover's Study Abroad program.
