The final lecture in St. Bonaventure University’s three-part series to promote interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education and career opportunities is scheduled for Dec. 4.
Dr. Dave Hilmey, chair of the Department of Chemistry at St. Bonaventure, will talk about “Chemistry and Space: How the Very Small Influences the Infinitely Large.”
The talk, which is free and open to the public, is scheduled for 7 p.m. in the Walsh Science Center Auditorium at St. Bonaventure. The series is sponsored by the university and the Dresser-Rand Challenger Learning Center.
“By directing specific attention to the thinking and experimentation that chemists bring to explaining phenomena, Dr. Hilmey’s presentation will provide further illustration of the intellectual and academic excitement that study in the STEM areas invite,” said Dr. Wolfgang Natter, dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at St. Bonaventure.
Since 2009, nearly 10,000 students from 17 counties in New York and Pennsylvania have participated in the Center’s missions and other programs.
“As a long-term educator in the public schools, I know firsthand how meaningful early exposure to the sciences can be for area students,” said Fred Welch, director of the Challenger Center. “I invite area students and their parents to take advantage of this series.”
