NSF Offers Program to Educate Students about Physics
EDINBURG - UTPA's new bachelor of Science in Physical Science may not appear popular when considering only three college students to change when a state mandate goes into effect in public school districts this fall. That's when all entering ninth graders in High Schools across Texas will be required to take physics course as part of their Science Curriculum. The program is designed to prepare future educators to teach Physics as well as Chemistry in the High School level. Once Juniors and Senior, students in the program will be eligible for scholarships thanks to a 1.2 Million Dollar Grant awarded to the program by the National Science Foundation.
