As part of its series of STEM events, Elizabethtown Community and Technical College will host Dr. Gerard Williger for a fascinating talk about "The Origins and Search for Life in the Universe." The talk, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Wednesday, March 7 at 6 p.m. in Room 212 of the college's Regional Postsecondary Center.
The LEAF-STEM series (Lectures and Exploration Activities For Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) seeks to elevate interest in careers and opportunities in those fields. Dr. Williger is an associate professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Louisville with an extensive background in astronomy research. He will meet with ECTC students earlier in the afternoon, then at 6 p.m. will make an open presentation about the evolution of life on Earth and the possibilities of life elsewhere in the universe. Williger will also discuss how modern technology has changed the way researchers investigate extra-terrestrial life today.
This STEM event is the second one during the 2017-18 academic year, following presentations related to the total solar eclipse that occurred in August.
