Engaged Curriculum Grants

Communicating Science Clearly

Effective communication skills are a vital, but often overlooked, component of a successful career in science or engineering. In a new course in the College of Arts and Sciences, students learn to communicate technical ideas to diverse audiences at all levels, as they develop hands-on educational activities for K-12 science classes. Students then field test the modules in partnership with K-12 teachers across the country, giving them the curricular materials needed to implement the Next Generation Science Standards. Students in the bootcamp course think about critical issues affecting their fields, including the role and visibility of science and scientists in the public arena, the importance of education in shaping culture and society and the varying perception of scientific research across diverse populations.
