A first year common course on computational problem solving and programming (abstract only)

Bruce W. Char, Thomas T. Hewett
2014 Proceedings of the 45th ACM technical symposium on Computer science education - SIGCSE '14  
Tom Abstract This is a report on work-in-progress for an entry-level course, Engineering Computation Lab, in which engineering and other STEM students learn about computational problem-solving and programming  ...  We report on our experiences, lessons learned, and plans for the future as we revise the course.  ...  However, the conventional undergraduate engineering degree is already full of other mandated science and discipline-specific course work.  ...

Exploring the use of positive humour as a tool in science communication: do science and non-science undergraduates differ in their receptiveness to humour in popular science articles?

Alfred Chan, Chammika Udalagama
2021 JCOM: Journal of Science Communication  
This study aims to test for differences in the receptiveness of science and non-science undergraduates to positive, non-aggressive humour being used in a science article, as an exploration into the utilization  ...  of such humour as a tool for more engaging science communication.  ...  In the current study, the responses were more divided for the two groups surveyed. 66.7% of science undergraduates felt humour made the science more appealing, but only 52.8% preferred the inclusion of  ...

ESSAYS ON SCIENCE AND SOCIETY: Envisioning Science--A Personal Perspective

F. Frankel
1998 Science  
For me, form, shape, and composition are integral to a scientific image or representation; I compose data, making it readable and comprehensible, and the theorists and experimentalists with whom I work  ...  That enthusiasm will expand only when science is made more accessible. Accessibility is the first step to convincing the nonscientific community that scientific illiteracy is no longer acceptable.  ...
