Olympic College to host annual Science, Engineering, and Mathematics Information Night Oct. 18
On the evening of Oct. 18, Olympic College (OC) will host the fourth annual Science, Engineering and Mathematics (SEM) Information Night. This free informational session is for high school students and all those considering careers involving Science, Engineering or Mathematics. This free event will be held 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 18, 2011 at the Science and Technology (Sci-Tech) building lobby on OC’s Bremerton campus.
“Olympic College is a very affordable option for transfer students, and is right in Kitsap’s own backyard.” said Dr. Judi Brown, dean of Mathematics, Engineering, Sciences, & Health (MESH) at Olympic College, “It is a great idea to complete the first two years of your degree at OC. Our students experience small class sizes, save money on tuition and commuting, and receive high quality instruction from dedicated, experienced faculty members.”
Washington State University also has a mechanical engineering program on OC’s Bremerton campus with local faculty for students who have earned an associate of science degree. Information will be provided by Dr. Marvin Pitts, program coordinator and faculty member.
Tutoring, scholarships, and mentoring for under-represented students majoring in science, engineering and mathematics fields are offered by the Mathematics, Engineering, and Science Achievement (MESA) program at OC’s Bremerton campus. Dr. Jodi Carson, MESA program director, will be available to answer questions. Other faculty and staff will be available to answer more questions and present highlights of the college’s numerous degree programs.
There is no need to register for this free event. Visitors are welcome to attend anytime during the event. Science exhibits will be on display and OC’s Astronomy Department has planned a fascinating planetarium presentation. Tours of the Sci-Tech facilities and labs will be available throughout the evening, and classes may welcome visitors from 7:25 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. Please review the schedule the night of the open house for options.
