Science Day 2016, sponsored by Halliburton

Science Day 2016 was a great success. Nearly 700 students attended and participated in presentations or hands-on activities in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science and Informatics, Geosciences, Mathematics, and Physics. Students were welcomed by Provost David Danahar, Dean Azmy S. Ackleh, Dr. Michael Totaro, and Dr. Patricia Mire before they were separated into groups that toured the College. Each group of high school students followed their tour-guide (an undergraduate student volunteer majoring in one of the sciences) to each academic Department or School. There, faculty and graduate and undergraduate student lab assistants gave presentations or conducted hands-on activities. This year, we incorporated a question and answer session with recent alumni who fielded questions from the high school students with respect to their own experiences as students within the College as well as career options afterwards. This year, once again, Science Day was a tremendous success. Dean Ackleh would like to thank the faculty, staff and students who volunteered their time and energy to this worthwhile endeavor.
