LMU TO HOST TENNESSEE ACADEMY OF SCIENCE CONFERENCE
April 3, 2008 - Harrogate, Tennessee — Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) will host the East Tennessee Division of the Tennessee Academy of Science (TAS) conference for the Collegiate Division at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 12 in the Business Education Building. LMU professor Dr. Eugene de Silva is coordinating the event at LMU.
Although undergraduate students can present papers in the regular sections at the TAS annual fall meetings, the main thrust of the Collegiate Division is to provide a forum for students to present papers in the spring. Three meetings are held across the state. Presentations may be presented in astronomy, biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, geography, geology, history of science, mathematics, medical sciences, physics and science teaching. Either the presenter or research advisor must hold a current TAS membership.
de Silva is an assistant professor of physics and chemistry at LMU, and he has 17 years’ experience in the field of education. He serves as chair of the Physics and Astronomy section of the TAS. Dr. de Silva has published papers and books, and is the editor of The International Journal of Martial Arts Research, the International Journal of Intelligence, Security and Terrorism Studies, and The International Journal of Multidisciplinary Research. Dr. de Silva is also an Advanced Placement (AP) Reader for physics.
The Tennessee Academy of Science seeks to promote scientific research and the diffusion of knowledge concerning science; to secure communication between persons engaged in scientific work, especially in Tennessee; to assist by investigation and discussion in developing and making known the material, educational, and other resource and riches of the state; to arrange and prepare for publication such reports of investigations and discussions as they further the aims and objectives of the Academy.
