The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the basic skills and knowledge required of a science communicator. Students in this class are exploring science communication in traditional and especially new media environments, and learning how to translate and communicate science to a non-specialist audience. In this class, students are getting hands-on experience communicating science in a variety of mediums. They are blogging about their experiences, their readings, and what they learn here.
