This lecture-lab course is designed to introduce students to the process and practice of chemical research via a cutting-edge project taken from one of the chemistry research labs at Penn State. Student teams will learn, discuss, and apply key chemistry concepts that drive the project as well as design and execute experiments that aid in the investigation of the project’s goals and questions. They will also embark on their lifelong journey as scientific communicators by learning how to present their findings through presentations and concise writing.
Effective Speech (CAS 100A) explores how people use techniques of oral communication to address practical, professional and civic problems. It is designed to introduce students to principles of effective public speaking, implemented through the design and presentation of individual speeches. CAS 100A fulfills 3 credits of the writing and speaking requirement for general education.
This pride is reserved for students in the Eberly College of Science or the Division of Undergraduate Studies.
