Science communication storytelling class at Cornell University

Communicating science to the public is a skillset many scientists require, but few are professionally trained in. There is a disconnect between learning science and being an effective communicator of it. Through a collaboration with Cornell University, TST BOCES, Engaged Cornell and WSKG, a new science communication class was born focused on storytelling and relating content to the general public. This unique partnership has led to Cornell University being the first collegiate student reporting lab for the PBS NewsHour. Through mentorship and skill building, students learn the art of how to storyboard, film, interview and edit, creating their own science stories.
