Visiting Scientists Series
A Vision for Inspiration
The Visiting Scientists Series (VSS) was established to inspire and educate young people and the public about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
VSS showcases scientists working in a variety of fields, with the intent to reach a diverse audience and to inspire local students to consider careers in science. VSS also provides resources for educators, educates members of technical organizations, and informs the community on science and technical issues.
The Visiting Scientists Series is a partnership of
Bismarck State College, Gateway to Science, Bismarck Public Schools, ND Society of Professional Engineers, Institute of Electrical & Electronics Engineers, St. Mary’s Central High School, US Geological Survey, University of Mary, DuPont and the ND Department of Human Services.
The next Visiting Scientists Series presentation will be “Math & Basketball: How Statistics is Changing Sports in the 21st Century” by Dr. Bob Willenbring on Thursday, March 13, 2014, @ 7:00PM. The presentation will be held at Bismarck State College’s NECE Building, Room 304, 1200 Schafer Street, Bismarck.
