The Utah State University community is invited to enjoy brain-energizing fun as USU’s College of Science Student Council hosts ‘Science Week’ Nov. 2-7.
“Our theme for the week is ‘In This Together,’” says Noah Braeger, USUSA College of Science Senator. “In the midst of a very unusual year with unexpected challenges, we invite all Aggies throughout campus and the state to join us in a week of virtual networking and fun.”
The week’s theme reflects the interdisciplinary nature of science and the diverse disciplines represented in USU’s College of Science, Braeger says, as well as Aggies “pulling together” in an extraordinary semester.
“We’ve had to be resilient, which Aggies do well,” Braeger says. “But it’s time to have some fun, too.”
All are invited to Science Week activities, which include:
