UOG Science Writing Project
In 2017 Guampedia began partnering with the University of Guam to produce science based entries about Guam by graduate students taking a course in Scientific Writing in a Masters of Biology and Masters of Environmental Science programs. These Guampedia entries were assigned to provide students with practice in communicating science to non-scientists. The students chose these topics and most of them are related either to their thesis project or work experience. The instructor in the course is Dr. Laurie Raymundo, a UOG Marine Laboratory faculty member.
