2019 Student Writers

Students in the Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Communication program in the Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communication write the stories, take photos, and create promotional videos for the Strategic Discussions for Nebraska publication.

The senior capstone course provides a learning experience similar to those students may encounter in the workplace, emphasizing accurate, clear and objective communication of science-based information.

During the course, students learn about scientific research being conducted at the university and the diverse funding sources required to support that research.

Throughout one semester, the students interview scientists from many disciplines and write stories, take photos, create videos, and design social media content based on those interviews. The stories in this publication were reviewed by the sources and approved for publication.
