The University of Central Florida Physics Department will be hosting a Physics Career Exploration Day on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at 10:00 AM (registration opens at 9:30 AM). This event will kick off in the College of Sciences Building, Auditorium Room 101.
Physics Career Exploration Day is geared toward high school students who want to explore careers in physics. The students are invited to bring one or two parents along with them to this career exploration day.
Physicists find themselves working in almost every science and engineering environment, including teaching, and are often in leadership roles. The students will hear from physicists about the great career opportunities in their fields. They will discuss how they chose their careers and what they actually do on a daily basis.
The day will include:
- speakers from the UCF Physics Department
- lunch, partly sponsored by the Florida High Tech Corridor Council (techPATH)
- tours of UCF facilities
- ice cream and personal discussions with both faculty and students from both departments.
Please share this event with anyone you think would benefit from this program.
