Science on Display


Science is an engaging activity

To highlight the idea of science as a human endeavor, we wanted all our research and teaching laboratories to be highly-visible to everyone.  Therefore, teaching and research spaces are designed with large glass windows and walls; not only does this design make effective use of natural lighting in the workspaces, but it also allows our science to be very visible.  This openness and visible activity creates an energy and a palpable excitement in the building.  It draws the attention of a curious passer-by.  It welcomes others to participate in the scientific process.  And it reinforces the idea that science is not only for scientists - it is for everyone.
