George Rebane, SESF Director of Research, who writes the TechTest has some thoughts on the Survivors Breakfast HERE.

Below are some proud parent of Ryan Brott. Ryan who took the test as a Freshman and made the second highest score. Since he was not a Senior, Ryan was not eligible for a scholarship grant this year.  However, we expect him to be setting the bar every year until he is a Senior.

Comments Off on TechTest2015 Student Seminar Dates

SESF is sponsoring TechTest2015 Seminars on the 7th of Feb and the 14th of Mar from 10-12 in the NU Science Theater. The two seminars will be similar, but not a repeat. Many students choose to attend both seminars.  George Rebane PhD, is our Director of Research, and he will present information on how best to approach TechTest.  Past participants have found these seminars helpful in approaching all tests, not just TechTest.

The date for TechTest2015 has not been set yet. When it is, the information will be posted on this blog page.
