Science Day offered for high school students
The Department of Chemistry and Forensic Science at Waynesburg University will hold its annual Science Day Thursday, Dec. 5. Organized in conjunction with the Office of Admissions and the American Chemical Society, local high school students and University applicants have the opportunity to spend the day as a science student.
Intended to excite high school students about science, participants will enjoy hands-on activities and lectures by students and faculty as well as demonstrations. A question and answer session will be offered to provide prospective students with the opportunity to ask undergraduates about the college experience.
Special presentations in chemistry, biology and forensic science will occur in addition to a tour of the marine biology lab, all hosted by professor and students.
Dr. Evonne Baldauff, chair of the Department of Chemistry and Forensic Science, believes science day is important because it helps students see the benefit of a degree in science.
“Science Day is a great way for us to showcase the many benefits of choosing a STEM (Science Technology Engineering Math) major,” said Baldauff. “By bringing local students to campus, we also have the opportunity to promote the exciting programs we have in the sciences at Waynesburg University.”
