Scientific and Technical Writing

STW or Scientific and Technical Writing, is a class where we learn to read and write technical and scientific reports and papers. This is often related to our STEM class as we learn how to write papers for our project. Some of the major aspects of this class are our literature review and STEM thesis.

Literature Review

To accompany our STEM 1 project, we have to do a lot of research and read many papers and articles. We then write a literature review encompassing all that we have read. To the right is the review that I wrote about microplastics and freshwater clams.

Project Notes

With all the research that we do, it is important to keep track of everything that we read. These notes allow us to track citations, summaries, and notes on what we read. They were very useful in writing my literature review and thesis.
