Multiple science communication courses taught in December

A full, 2.5-day science communication course was taught at the Delaware National Estuarine Research Reserve in Dover, Delaware in mid-December. The course included close to 30 participants, mostly from the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control. In contrast to other courses, this course had a lot of land-based research and restoration topics that were a focus of the participants' projects. A one-day science communication course was taught at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore as part of the Living Marine Resources Cooperative Science Center, a NOAA-sponsored partnership. The course was attended by 23 students and focused on conceptual diagrams and PowerPoint presentation skills.
