The ability to communicate effectively to peers, professionals and the public is critical to being successful in any scientific field. Science addresses questions that are integral to some of today’s most pressing political and social issues including health care, environmental quality, technology and education. Therefore, scientists must be able to place their work in a context that is relevant and accessible to a broad audience. This course is designed to teach students how to communicate complex interdisciplinary scientific concepts through written and oral mediums and to prepare them to communicate successfully with peers, researchers, faculty, students, and future employers. The course consists of a 2-hour class session and a 3-hour weekly communication and teaching lab in a K-12 school.
