This course is designed to develop your skills in technical communication and scientific research practices.

The technical communication aspect of this course is concerned with sharpening your powers of oral and written persuasion, known to the scientific community as a proposal presentation and writing.

The scientific research practices aspect of this course is concerned with teaching you to think like a scientist so you will be able to formulate a hypothesis, design experiments to test the hypothesis, and interpret results.
