Understanding how to effectively communicate science and conduct impactful outreach is an increasingly important tool for all science students. In this course, students learn and practice traditional aspects of science communication, including scientific writing and presentation, but also expand into digital outreach approaches through the practice of video, photography, and podcasting. Students use each of these media in depth, creating usable products and gaining experience with outreach tools such as social media, story mapping, and other web-based resources to disseminate their products. Scientific projects highlighted include Warren Wilson College faculty and student research, aiding our community in its efforts to communicate our science to the public.
