Jonsson-Rowland Science Center
& Hirsch Observatory
The Jonsson-Rowland Science Center & Hirsch Observatory is home to the School of Science, holding classes and laboratories for the Departments of Biology and Physics and related disciplines. The Hirsch Observatory, on top of the building, is open to all students.
This building also has a biosimulation lab, a computer equipped classroom which is used to teach genetics, parts of introduction to biology, molecular modeling and design. This lab can be used to do homework, locate old test files, class notes, and assignments on line.
A second computer lab is equipped with desktop workstations and is used for collaborative learning and studying. Interactive physics classrooms on the upper floor are used for Studio Physics classes, combining the features of lecture, lab, and recitation into each class meeting.
