Transforming Labs and Classrooms

So many jobs are dependent on having a solid foundation in the sciences. Twenty-first century tools and facilities make that happen. The Department of Commerce predicts that from 2008 to 2018, Science Technology Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) jobs in the U.S. are expected to grow by 15 percent. In the last decade or so, as we have adopted new pedagogical methods and technologies, our existing facilities become more antiquated. PLU will not become a leading institution in the education and advancement of science without a modern science facility.
