IRG’s CEO, Dr. J. David Musgraves, spoke at the Physics Career Exploration Day on Saturday, October 3, 2015. The event was hosted by the University of Central Florida Physics Department and was geared toward high school students who want to explore careers in physics.
Physicists find themselves working in almost every science and engineering environment, including teaching, and are often in leadership roles. The students heard from physicists about the great career opportunities in their fields and what they actually do on a daily basis.
The day included speakers from the Physics department, a lunch partly sponsored by the Florida High Tech Corridor Council (techPATH), tours of the facilities and an opportunity to enjoy personal discussions with both faculty and students.
