Communicating Science to the Public Effectively (CENV 500)

This is a seminar, discussion-based course for graduate students

scientific research with non-specialists. At the end of the
quarter, each student will present a 20 minute public talk on

The Science Speaker Series at Town Hall Seattle.

In this course, students will:
- Develop and practice several analogies to distill their research
- Create a variety of concise research-promoting statements
- Practice story-telling and audience consideration
- Use improvisation as a public speaking tool
- Engage in weekly readings and discussions
- Hear from guest speakers on science communication

application process and an expectation agreement which must be
completed for a student to be enrolled. The student application
