Next month, catch Payette’s Michael Hinchcliffe and Sara Gewurz discuss our newly opened Science Center at Amherst College at this year’s Tradeline College and University Science and Engineering Facilities Conference on April 8-9, 2019 in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Amherst College Science Center: A new facility benchmark for the idealized science program
The new interdisciplinary Science Center is Amherst College’s response to surging science program enrollment, the demand for updated science facilities, and the need for active learning space on campus. Session leaders illustrate how the opportunity to create an idealized program reshaped decisions on department layouts for optimal space use and collaboration efficiency. They profile active learning lab and classroom solutions and examine new space types, adjacencies, and attributes for growth, flexibility, new pedagogies, and enhanced student-to-faculty ratios. They demonstrate achievements in sustainability and energy efficiency that surpass national benchmarks.
