Lycoming to hold Science Saturday Oct. 2
Lycoming College will host its annual Science Saturday Open House on Oct. 2, at 9:30 a.m. The program offers high school juniors and seniors an inside look at the College's astronomy, biology, chemistry and physics departments.
"Science Saturday is a great way for students interested in collegiate science majors to meet with students already in the programs," said Dr. David Fisher, professor of astronomy and physics. "At a small liberal arts institution, students work along-side faculty members with instruction that is individualized as much as possible. Laboratory work counts heavily toward undergraduate preparation for their careers or graduate school studies."
