Science and the technologies it produces demand enormous resources and provide immense public benefit. However, science is poorly understood by the American public, partly because communicating scientific concepts and findings to a general audience is rarely a part of scientific training. We plan to develop, implement, and assess a short curriculum for training science research students to better communicate their findings to a broad audience. The curriculum will be developed during a faculty workshop and piloted in the Kenyon Summer Science Scholar program. Students will produce a short essay suitable for publication on the Kenyon website.
