This talk will examine the interdisciplinary curriculums that give science and design majors the opportunity to collaborate in a studio environment and rethink how scientific knowledge is communicated to the public. These classrooms encourage students to critique the visual conventions found in science textbooks, while redefining design as a "transparent" craft rather than a spectacle of stylistic trends. Whether in the form of a poster, book, web site, or mobile app, the outcomes from these constructive endeavors give shape to the on-going dialogue between scientists and designers.
