Discovering Science: Science Writing

Without science writing, science could not really exist. By recording experiments and publishing the results of studies and discoveries, scientists can share their important work, and find an engaged audience.

Science writing takes many forms: from press releases to video scripts. You’ll learn about different types of science writing, and look at the factors which you need to consider to write a story.

You’ll discover how to gather accurate information and relevant opinions as well as tips on how to conduct a successful interview.

This course is part of the ‘Discovering Science’ program, which will enable you to learn about the extraordinary world of everyday chemistry, and earn 10 credits from the University of Leeds.
