Bioscience Technology program prepares for Visitors' Day

Holland College's Bioscience Technology program is preparing to host its annual visitors' day for the first time since COVID-19 hit three years ago.

The event, which takes place on Thursday, January 26, is to help prospective and accepted students experience the bioscience laboratory first-hand. It also allows them to meet current first-year students and ask them questions, and to learn more about the two-year program.

Learning manager Dr. Jenn Slemmer said the visitors will pair with the first-year students to complete some DNA isolation research they are working on.

"The best way to learn about our programs is to watch and show potential students how bioscience involves teamwork," Dr. Slemmer said.

"Bioscience is teamwork, and if you're not a good team player, then you don't want to be in biotech because no labs are just one person."

The event runs from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on January 26 in the Centre for Applied Science and Technology on the Prince of Wales Campus in Charlottetown.

There is no charge to participate in the visitors' day event, but visitors should contact Dr. Slemmer by email at jeslemmer@hollandcollege.com to register.
