Apply communication, cultural competency, and leadership skills to work with community partners in a service learning practicum. Work with underrepresented students in the Madison metropolitan area in elementary after-school science clubs, and critically reflect on the ties between their academic and community partnerships, and differences between campus and community culture. Work with different community partners than they did in previous Service with Youth in STEM courses. This practicum combines the service experience with an in-class component to prepare to provide opportunities to critically reflect upon the ties between academic preparation and community partnerships, and on their experiences in varied community settings.
