Bermuda College will be hosting their 2013 Science Week from January 28 – 31. Traditionally the natural sciences [Biology, Chemistry, Environmental & Earth Science and Physics] have been celebrated at the College through Corange Science Week, however in 2011 the College began to incorporate the applied sciences for an all-inclusive event.
On Wednesday, January 30, the Corange Science Public Forum will be held in the North Hall Lecture Theatre from 6.30pm to 8pm. The topic, “Tracking Tiger Sharks in the Atlantic” will be presented by Dr. Neil Burnie and Mr. Choy Aming..
On Thursday, January 31, the campus will be full of middle school [morning] and high school [afternoon] students as they interact with faculty, learning the scope of natural and applied sciences in an experiential format. Interactive demonstrations, lab work, building and de-constructing, a nursing expo, and culinary arts activities are all on tap for these potential BC students.
In the evening of January 31, there will be several public events for the public to connect with its community college. Applied Science & Technology will be presenting several DIY classes to those who want to be more handy around the house.
They are called ‘recession buffers’ that could help you save a few dollars while learning about pressure tanks, water pumps, changing your car oil, or adjusting your water heater thermostat.
Chef Teneika Eve will also be hosting a live “Live, Love, Eat” demonstration in the culinary kitchens, with a 3-course sampling meal. Both events will be held between 6 – 8 p.m. in Tech Hall and the culinary kitchens, respectively.
