University of Alberta, Augustana Campus Undergraduate Teaching Laboratory Renewal
The general approach for the renewal of the undergraduate Chemistry and Biology teaching laboratories is to provide energetic and inspiring spaces that encourage and engage students not only in science as a subject, but also to pursue careers in science-related fields. In order to accommodate the needs of the undergraduate programs and science research by professors, each lab has incorporated elements of flexibility. The three labs have been completely renewed with new layouts, casework, finishes, lab services, lighting, ventilation and audiovisual. In addition, the Chemistry lab now has six new low flow fume hoods that can accommodate up to 24 student – one of the fume hoods and benches is barrier free so that there are no limitations to students wishing to access the lab.
