If you are an undergraduate student taking an intro-level science course with lab, this workshop is for you. In this workshop, we will dig into several key features of scientific research writing—from how to keep your Results and Discussion sections distinct to whether you should use direct quotations. Together, we will analyze drafts of undergraduate lab reports to gain a better understanding of why scientific writing can be challenging, and how with practice your own scientific writing can tell a compelling story about inquiry and discovery. You will leave the workshop with specific strategies for improving the organization and clarity of your own scientific writing.
