Students who are interested in pursuing an academically excellent, Christ-centered degree in the fields of science, technology, engineering or math are encouraged to attend Geneva College's STEM Day on Friday October 25, 2013.
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) Day is designed for students interested in these programs, and is constructed in a way that maximizes interaction with Geneva’s faculty, students and facilities. Visiting this day provides first-hand knowledge of what it is like to major in math, biology, physics, computer science, chemistry or engineering at Geneva.
“STEM Day gives students and families an in-depth look at the STEM programs at Geneva College. It is a perfect opportunity to learn more about Geneva, while at the same time getting hands-on experience with the major they are interested in,” explains senior admissions counselor Roger Blevins.
In addition to the planned activities, prospective students will have the opportunity to hear from visiting lecturer Dr. Elizabeth Kessler, an art historian who focuses on the visual culture of science and its relationship to art. She will present "Postcards into Outer Space" in Skye Lounge of the Student Center at 10:10 a.m.
Kessler earned her Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and currently teaches art history at Stanford University. Her 2012 book, Picturing the Cosmos: Hubble Space Telescope Images and the Astronomical Sublime, examines the aesthetics of deep space images and their invocation of the visual language of the sublime.
