Description/Abstract

Students participate in an outreach seminar to learn the fundamentals of presentation, visualization, and assessment of science literacy. Each student makes multiple presentations during the term to hone skills and to shape a final project. Students contribute time to three outreach activities in the campus or local community, sharing information on outcomes through online scrapbooks. Interdisciplinary students learn about their strengths and interests in both formal and informal science education. Research projects on campus ecology form the core of the outreach activities, often resulting in senior thesis projects incorporating outreach.
