SCIENCE CENTER TALK: Wesleyan’s Natural Sciences and Mathematics held its weekly lunch April 7 in Woodhead Lounge where Ted Sergi, CEO of the Connecticut Center for Science and Exploration (CTCSE), spoke on the center. Expected to open in 2008, the science center will overlook the Connecticut River in downtown Hartford and offer innovative, hands-on exhibits and programs in the 140,000 square-foot facility.

A partnership between Wesleyan and CTCSE has several dimensions, including a relationship with Wesleyan’s Project to Increase Mastery of Mathematics and Sciences. The partnership will provide professional development for science teachers, allow Wesleyan faculty to act as advisors in the science center, and create joint efforts between CTCSE, PIMMS and Wesleyan in general, to seek grants to fund professional development.

The partnership was established by Peter Patton, interim vice president of Administration, vice president and secretary of the university and professor of earth and environmental sciences; Joe Bruno, dean of Natural Sciences and Mathematics and professor of chemistry; Mike Zebarth, director of PIMMS; and Billy Weitzer, senior associate provost and dean of Continuing Studies; intern dean of Student Academic Services and adjunct lecturer of psychology.
