“Science says the first word on everything, and the last word on nothing” ~ Victor Hugo

This course is designed specifically for students majoring in the natural sciences. In this course, students will write several types of scientific documents common in the natural science disciplines (Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Computer Science, etc.), such as grant proposals, science literature reviews, and popular science writing. Improving the clarity of their writing will help students throughout their academic careers, whether or not they ultimately enter scientific fields.

I take my theme for this course–-Not Exactly (Writing) Rocket Science-–from my favorite science writer, Ed Yong, and his blog, Not Exactly Rocket Science.
