THE DORDT COLLEGE CAMPUS

Science/Technology Center

The Science and Technology Center incorporates lecture halls, classrooms, faculty offices, and special facilities for the physics, chemistry, agriculture, engineering, biology, and environmental studies departments.

Large and small laboratories for organic and physical chemistry and two physics laboratories are available to students in the physical sciences.

Agriculture facilities include animal science and agronomy labs, a surgery, and a live animal room.

The engineering wing includes labs for mechanical engineering, electronics, electrical engineering, and computer-aided design.

The biology department has at its disposal numerous laboratories of varying sizes that are used for teaching and for student research projects.

A molecular biology laboratory with genomics equipment allows upperclass students to do DNA sequencing, DNA fingerprinting, and other types of genetic analysis. A dedicated cell culture laboratory allows students to do mammalian tissue culture experiments.

A laboratory is also devoted to work in environmental studies.

NOTE: The Science and Technology building is currently under construction and undergoing expansion and renovation (you can see photos of the groundbreaking in our photo gallery). Starting in the fall of 2014, students will be able to enjoy updated facilities and additional amenities.
