23rd Annual LASER Day Event!

Liberal Arts, Science & Engineering Resource Day

Wednesday, November 19, 2014

LASER Day is designed for 10th, 11th and 12th grade high school students and community college students and their parents, guardians, teachers and guidance counselors. The Fall 2014 event will be held on the Florida Tech Campus on Wednesday, November 19, 2014, from 2:15 p.m. – 8:15 p.m. This is a free, annual event sponsored by the College of Science, College of Engineering and College of Psychology and Liberal Arts.

The study of science, engineering and liberal arts is exciting, and through LASER Day you can experience this very excitement. Our program allows students to choose three specific areas of interest to them, visit laboratories and attend presentations about chemistry, engineering, the space sciences, marine biology, media, music, languages and computing, to name a few. Students will also have the opportunity to observe working research laboratories and discuss research projects with the faculty conducting them. From 4:00pm – 5:00pm, while students are attending their sessions, we will also be offering a Financial Aid & Undergraduate Admissions 101 session for interested parents/guardians. All presentations are over by 6:15 p.m. and you are invited to join us for a light dinner in the Hartley Room of the Denius Student Center (6:20 p.m. to 8:15 p.m., 225 seats available, register online).

If you visit our campus, apply and ultimately enroll full-time, a $1,000 Visit Grant will be applied to your first-year financial aid package to help offset your travel expenses, and is renewable for up to four years.  In addition to this LASER Day visit, if students or parents would like to visit campus again to get a more personalized tour, please call (321) 674-8030.
