ENGRG 3360: Developing STEM Storytelling Skills with WSKG Public Media and PBS NewsHour
If you can’t communicate your science and engineering ideas, their potential can’t be realized. This course tackles the challenge of 21st century STEM communication by developing both the technical and storytelling skills needed to create engaging presentations, videos, and professional social media posts. Whether you are a doctoral student preparing for an academic position or a member of an engineering project team that needs to fundraise, this course will give you the skills you need to effectively communicate. The content created will also be utilized regionally by WSKG and nationally by the PBS NewsHour. Cornell is the first university-based, STEM student reporting lab of the PBS NewsHour and part of our mission is to mentor high school-based STEM student reporting labs across the country. The Director of Science Content at WSKG, our local NPR/PBS affiliate, will co-teach the course.
