Science Education Center
The SCIENCE EDUCATION CENTER (SEC) consists of three components:
- Physics Education Research

- Science Outreach to Parents and Community
The purpose of the SEC is to create an interactive learning environment to expose school students. Parents and other community members to the exciting aspects of science, its relevance to everyday life and the needed participation from all the constituents and stakeholders.
