New and Improved Lab Spaces
Science Rediscovered provided funding for new state-of-the-art lab spaces that offer students inspiring learning opportunities. Students learn about renewable energy possibilities as they work in pairs to discover how hydrogen fuel cells work by building and testing their own model cars. Or they work in teams to explore the watershed and use environmental science methods to determine the quality of a water sample and its level of safety for plants and animals.
Two new laboratory spaces are equipped with ventilation/fume exhaust hoods, gas, compressed air, resinous counter-tops, storage space for flammables, refrigerator/freezers, and dishwashers for lab ware.
Three new classrooms offer space for school group labs and dedicated space for the Museum's Science Minors program.
The new spaces are equipped with Internet connections, LCD television monitors, DVD players, Smartboards, wireless microphones and speakers. Combined, these features allow for access to media presentations and Internet data that enhance learning.
Give a gift today to inspire the inventors, innovators and scientists of tomorrow.
