Public Science

Public Science
Science is not done until findings are published and ideas are shared. But who gets to report science and who is listening? In this course, we will explore the practice and theory of public science. We will develop the science literacy skills necessary to research and apply those skills through project-based learning. Project themes vary by term, but all projects focus on local and regional issues in science that have broader applications. Students will read scientific papers and discuss, conduct independent research, collaborate, and engage in fieldwork. By engaging in citizen science and storytelling we will explore how science is viewed by public audiences while improving our ability to tell the story of science.
