0

IAS faculty member Avery Shinneman, along with Charity Lovitt (School of STEM) and Kara Adams (Office of Community Engagement), published a book chapter on “Building Scientific Communication Skills through MythBusters Videos and Community Engagement” in a volume on “Communication in Chemistry” from the American Chemical Society.  The chapter describes the use of a community-based learning and research project in one of UW Bothell’s Discovery Core courses as a means of developing scientific communication practices alongside traditional introductory material on experimental design and data handling.
