Description:
The Science Complex was designed to meet the goals of Project Kaliedoscope (PKAL) by facilitating interdisciplinary research and collaboration and putting science on display. The LEED registered building will house the biology, chemistry, geology, math/computer science, and physics departments.

The project consists of the renovation of three existing classroom/lab buildings with the construction of a new state of the art lab structure and green house. The four building complex is connected through a large glass atrium allowing for a large indoor space with outdoor qualities. The building is being used as a Living/Learning Center with scientific displays highlighting alternative energy uses and ongoing student/faculty research.
