Continuing Education Under COVID-19
Oct 30, 2020When plans were made for Texas A&M's main campus to reopen this fall, faculty and staff were faced with a daunting task — creating safe and comfortable learning environments for all students while simultaneously navigating the ongoing health crisis created by COVID-19. In the College of Science, where active learning is often so crucial to instruction, professors continue to find innovative ways to keep students hooked, despite the ongoing challenges of a global pandemic.
Celebrating ScienceTexas A&M Science celebrated 15 faculty, staff and student award recipients, not to mention another year of overall achievements and progress as part of the college's annual Faculty & Staff Meeting and Awards Presentation, held virtually due to the ongoing pandemic on October 27 from the Stephen W. Hawking Auditorium.

Jun 19, 2020Texas A&M students interested in learning more about the fundamental science behind COVID-19 and other trending topics while satisfying a CORE science requirement will have a unique opportunity to explore such issues in real time this fall, courtesy of a new interdisciplinary course team-taught by instructors from the College of Science and College of Liberal Arts.
A Gift Repaid
May 05, 2020Inspired by the financial support she received in nursing school, Agnes Hrncir established a scholarship for students in the College of Science enrolled in aggieTEACH, a program that certifies undergraduates to teach math and science courses at the middle and high school levels. Her gift pays tribute to her late husband, Richard, who taught math for remedial students in Rosenberg, Texas.
