BIO 098 - Scientific Communication


How can scientists best communicate the exciting but sometimes complex ideas of biology memorably and clearly to different types of audiences? BIO 098 Science Communication will answer this question through active learning in a supportive environment. Students will gain practical experience in science communication by presenting the subjects they are learning and the discoveries they are making concurrently in BIO 200 Research Experience in Biology. Genres to be covered include the writing of scientific papers, posters, and social media posts, as well as oral presentations of scientific talks, posters, and rocket pitches. BIO 098 will provide foundational and valuable knowledge and skills for any bioscience major to use in future courses and careers in science.
