Awards

Physical Sciences Awards

 

Every spring semester a small group of students from our chemistry, engineering, geology, and physics classes are recognized at the Physical Sciences Department's Awards Ceremony. These students distinguish themselves by their exceptional talent and work ethic. Each student receives a certificate and a textbook award to commemorate their achievement. The Butte College Science faculty commend their hard work and academic achievements!
