Over the past ten years, PKAL has sponsored more than twenty workshops and meetings focused on planning facilities for undergraduate science. For the portfolio being prepared for the Appleton assembly, we are beginning to post stories about new and renovated spaces for science that are emerging on campuses across the country, including but going beyond those linked to the work of PKAL. Brief stories are desired, following the model of stories already included in portfolios for the 2003 PKAL Assemblies
Resource Portfolio.

The story should highlight one specific dimension of the building, or aspect of the planning process, that would spark reviewers to consider such ideas and insights as they proceed through the process of planning. We especially invite stories that provide concrete examples of one of the characteristics of strong undergraduate science buildings proposed by PKAL.
