Welcome to the November edition of the eNewsletter. With the fall semester now more than halfway over, we’ve realized that we’ve had a wonderful selection of events and activities. We’re proud to endorse these events in the hopes that they might inspire our students to see the effects of science and math in the world away from school.
The Chemistry & Biochemistry and Physics & Astronomy Departments have been busy putting on exciting shows to amaze both students and local residents. Chemistry Week students vaporized Swedish Fish for the first time on campus, and the BYU Acoustics Research Group exploded balloons at deafening decibels. These creative students showed the more entertaining side of science, reminding audience members that science is not all work and no play.
We here at CPMS have been very impressed with the ingenuity and scholarship of our students. We are continually amazed by their dedication to find answers to intriguing questions. Their research efforts and competition results are a sure indication of the hope for the future of science and math. With these students leading the way, the possibilities are endless.
Recently, some of our students in the Department of Geological Sciences brought home the championship of the 2011 Society
of Exploration Geophysicists’ Challenge Bowl. They competed against the top schools in the country, and their victory was an enormous triumph for the entire college. These students were able to have the opportunity to interview with ExxonMobil, a leader in the energy industry. We continue to seek more opportunities like this, where our outstanding students can network and find career opportunities.
This is where you come in. Many of you are currently spread out across the globe and plugged into thousands of great employers who may be interested in the strong skills and capabilities our CPMS graduates have to offer.
If you know of an available job or internship at your place of employment, we encourage you to submit it to BYU's eRecruiting database and use the available tools to help find the best possible candidate for the vacancy. By using eRecruiting as part of your recruiting efforts, you can help provide CPMS students and graduates with valuable experiences that launch strong and productive careers.
As always, we look forward to hearing from you as we all work to improve our corner of the world through exciting explorations in our respective fields.
