Bisc 305: Science in Practice


This course will expose students to important practical aspects of science as it pertains: to the craft of science, the communication of science, and the types of careers that are possible with a STEM degree. This course will involve didactic sessions with the instructor on practical skills related to "craft, communication, and careers" but will be driven largely by discussions with guest presenters from different sectors in which there are opportunities for those with STEM expertise to make an impact within government, industry/the private sector, academia, and non-profit organizations.
