    Write, Present, Create: Science Communication for Undergraduates helps non-science major students successfully complete papers, presentations, and new media projects in undergraduate science courses. This guide will help students create original work that is scientifically robust in content and structure, and encourage them to support their ideas with the best available scientific evidence.

    This short, focused guide addresses multiple aspects of communicating in the sciences with an emphasis on biology and environmental science. Students learn to effectively identify and use reputable sources including those found online. They also learn how to organize their research, plan projects, correctly cite sources, and self-edit. The chapter on presentations details how to create a powerful slide deck and offers tips for an engaging delivery. This new edition offers suggestions on creating high quality videos and animations, as well as maximizing study time in and out of the classroom.

    By providing easy to read, easy to use guidance on creating scientifically sound work, Write, Present, Create eliminates the anxiety many non-majors feel in required science courses. The book is specifically designed for undergraduate students taking general education science courses in a college, university, or advanced placement setting.

    Mary Poffenroth earned her M.S. in conservation biology at San Jose State University where she is now a lecturer in the Department of Biological Sciences. She is also the creator of an outdoor, environmental student volunteer program through which over 3,500 students have volunteered over 14,000 work hours to local and environmental non-profit organizations. She was one of fifteen faculty members to receive a Salzburg Fellowship in 2013 to help promote globalization on the university campus and has created written and visual work for media outlets such as Science and John Wiley & Sons.
