Science communication by Kenyon's BIOL 261: Animal Behavior students

About the project

Kenyon College students in BIOL 261: Animal Behavior each report on two recent publications related to the course topic. Their task is to communicate the science in an engaging way to a non-specialist audience. Additionally, they create or commission figures to accompany the written pieces. These figures are meant to help elaborate the scientific story. Through this assignment, students learn about copyright and proper attribution of work.
