Cedarville University invites high school students interested in pursuing careers in science or mathematics to the University's Science and Math Day.

The event  begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 7 and includes exciting, interactive laboratory activities that will highlight all of the department’s majors—biology, premed biology, chemistry, geology, mathematics and physics. Attendees can study the physics of toys, build hexflexagons, figure out math puzzles, or perform guided experiments with digital light microscopes.

While touring the Engineering, Nursing and Science Center’s 20 laboratories, guests may view current students’ botanical and molecular biological research projects and state of the art analytical instruments such as the Shimadzu gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer and the Nikon Eclipse polarizing microscope.

With its Center for Bioethics and dedicated Christian professors, Cedarville offers not only an education, but also a biblical perspective on the intricacies of the universe. “We want our students to develop an understanding of creation and its Creator. We provide a rigorous educational experience that equips students for success,” says Dr. Dennis Flentge, chair of the department of science and math. “Students also learn how to be good stewards of their knowledge and skills in their professions, the environment and in their personal lives.”

Guests will interact with students and faculty during an afternoon mixer and are invited to a bonfire Saturday evening hosted by Chi Theta Pi, a student organization for pre-professional students.

Parents of participants are also encouraged to attend. All guests receive free meal passes for lunch in the dining hall, and campus tours will be available at various points in the day. Attendees for either event may stay in the University’s residence halls Friday or Saturday night.
