The Science Education Center
The Science Education Center at Georgia College is dedicated to excellence in science teaching and learning. The Center is housed in the Department of Chemistry, Physics and Astronomy. Through courses, workshops, camps, scientific competitions, partnerships, curricular and other educational activities, the Center acts as a vehicle for enhancing science education for students from P-16.
Student Research Opportunities
We have a long history of scientific research conducted by students - each faculty has an active undergraduate research group. Each year a cadre of freshman are selected to receive a highly regarded four-year research scholarship. The funds are used to support student research with a professor in the department.
The Oconee Area Strategic Initiative in Science (OASIS) is a consortium chartered in 2001 to address challenges and solutions in K-16 science in the seven partner counties (Baldwin, Hancock, Jasper, Johnson, Putnam, Washington, and Wilkinson). OASIS involves K-12 teachers, business representatives, Oconee RESA consultants, and Georgia College faculty and students.
