DCC OFFERS “EXPLORE SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING? WORKSHOP

 

DANVILLE, VA, March 17, 2010 – If you thinking about a career in science or engineering, you will not want to miss Danville Community College’s “Explore Science and Engineering Workshop? to be offered on Saturday, March 27. The half-day workshop, which explores a few of the basic engineering principles using simple scientific experiments, will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 noon in the Taylor Building, Room 209.

Over the last century, there has been tremendous improvement in the quality of life due to advances in science and engineering. It is expected that scientists and engineers will play an even greater role in the societies of the future. Whether it’s basic household products like vacuum cleaners, soap, cleaning pads or more advanced machinery like computers, medical imaging devices and the space shuttle, they all require an understanding of the basic laws of science and the ability to use these laws to make new and improved products.

“The role of a scientist is to understand and explore the fundamental laws of nature whereas the role of an engineer is to use them for betterment of human life,? said Dr. Mukesh Chhajer, Associate Professor of Physics and Mathematics.

Chhajer also adds that the workshop will feature information about guaranteed transfer opportunities to the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, as well as other four-year colleges and universities. Space is limited so make your reservations today, call 434.797.8491 or email Professor Chhajer by clicking here. mchhajer@dcc.vccs.edu.
