This student-originated studies program will provide participants with the opportunity to undertake extended writing projects. Each student will select a topic of personal interest, one in which they have appropriate background acquired via previous college-level academic work. The goal will be to craft a written document designed for a non-technical audience that will explore all aspects of the topic. Preference will be given to students working on scientific and/or environmental topics. Although students will work independently, weekly workshop sessions will help ensure that that progress is being made and that writing and interpretative skills are being honed. Weekly seminars will also explore examples of popular science writing. For those interested, the program can serve as a culminating experience to a college career.
