Dr. Hizer makes presentation at the Savannah Science Seminar
On September 14, Todd Hizer, Chemistry, made a presentation to the 2009-2010 edition of the Savannah Science Seminar. The mission of the Savannah Science Seminar is to promote an understanding and appreciation for science through informative, participatory presentations and hands on workshops in the fields of engineering, technology, mathematics, and the medical practices, to our motivated and highly qualified secondary school students in Savannah, Chatham and Effingham County. Dr. Hizer's program consisted of a series of demonstrations at the opening night "gala" of the seminar, held at the Center for Continuing Education with 32 of the top high school science students in the tri-county area present as well as 50 of their parents and teachers. The general theme was about the way the interaction of molecules affects the bulk properties and behavior of substances and included a series of demonstrations. Dr. Hizer has worked with the Seminar for the past 20 years and has served on the Board for the annual series for the past decade.
