The community is invited to attend a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Dordt College Science and Technology Center on Thursday, May 9, beginning at 12:45 p.m. just west of the Greenhouse.

“Expanding and updating our facilities allows us to accommodate the growing number of students and provide cutting-edge teaching and lab experiences,” said Dr. Ethan Brue, professor of engineering and the lead planner for the project.

The $12 million first phase of the project will include a two-story addition connecting the current science building to the classroom building. An engineering design and project wing will include new project areas and laboratories.

The comprehensive remodeling of the current structure will provide a better building layout, allow for further growth, and connect the sciences to other academic areas on campus for more collaboration across disciplines.

The project will take place in three phases and is expected to cost $20 million. To learn more about future phases of the project and see architect’s renderings, go to
