The University of Southern Mississippi School of Social Work, Department of Biological Sciences, and Center for Science and Mathematics Education will host a Science Careers and Research Encounters program for teachers, counselors, and ninth through twelfth students on Saturday, April 12, from 9 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. in Lloyd Hall on the university’s Gulf Park campus in Long Beach.


Students will have the opportunity to interact with local scientists, researchers, engineers and science educators. The scientists and researchers will discuss their careers in science, as well as current research activities.

The program is designed to provide students with career information and guidance associated with various fields of science, assist students in evaluating their abilities, interests, talents and personal characteristics as related to the sciences, and provide information on existing educational programs and training in Mississippi.

The Science Careers and Research Encounters program, which is limited to 100 registrants, is made possible through a grant provided by the Gulf Region Health Outreach Program. For more information, contact Shelia Brown at 228.452.9188 or shelia.brown@usm.edu.
