Student Awards

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