In this article the authors describe a course on science outreach that was developed as part of our college’s goal that all students participate in a meaningful community engagement experience. The Science & Community Engagement course provides a way for students with science or science-related majors to learn how to effectively
communicate scientific knowledge with the general public. In particular, this article focuses on student involvement in the Resources and Opportunities in Science Education (ROSE) Project, a unique outreach program that targets parents and caregivers of children from groups that are historically underrepresented in the sciences.
