Being a Public Scientist

You're the Expert: Being a Public Scientist
A scientist’s work is not complete until their findings are shared. But who tells the story of science and who gets to be called a scientist? In this course we will learn the theory and practice of communicating science to public audiences. We will explore the roles of social media, comics, citizen science and science cafés in getting the public engaged with STEM learning. Through learning about audience, visual design, and storytelling, we will craft our own stories about science. Students will develop the science literacy skills necessary to research the world around us and to communicate Science to others. 3 hrs. sem.
