TUNE IN TO SCIENCE!
Science Exploration Day: a gathering on the campus of SUNY Buffalo of scientists, engineers and healthcare professionals where each presents a brief glimpse into the world of science, technology, and healthcare in Western New York to the next generation of prospective scientists and the everyday citizens who will be asked to support science in the 21st century.
Science Exploration Day is open to students from public and private schools throughout Western New York school districts. Our goal is to "tune them in to science", so they will continue their studies in science and become part of the future in the mathematics, science, engineering, and medical fields.
Each student will hear from the Keynote Speaker and one of several Large Group speakers, then attend two small group sessions or lab tours. Keynote speakers in the past have presented the "state of the art" in topics, such as Forensics, Mars Exploration, and the Cold World of Cryogenics. Many of the presenters are from UB and area colleges and universities, as well as local industries, research laboratories and government agencies. Others are major participants in health care services. These sessions provide excellent up-to-date supplements to the topics that are part of high school science courses. Students have an opportunity to select small group sessions and lab tours from the list provided with registration materials.
Our next "Day" occurs on the North Campus of UB, beginning 8:25 am and concluding by 1:05 pm. The date selected is part of the UB mid semester break, so we almost "have the campus to ourselves".
Feedback from SEDay 2013:
"Dear Mr. Ruda and the Science Exploration Day Committee,
Thank-you for allowing my classmates to visit the University of Buffalo. We greatly appreciate the tour and activities. We enjoyed all the presentations. Many of the students were very interested in the topics of CSI, Cryogenics, and the Car Simulation. It was a great experience and a lot of fun. Thanks again and we are looking forward to visiting again."
