Science education requires specialized equipment and labs. Teaching technology is constantly evolving. Volunteer State Community College faculty, staff and students celebrated the beginning of a project Friday that will update the science and math facilities on the Gallatin campus. A groundbreaking ceremony was held for a $6.2 million renovation of the J. Howard Warf Math and Science Building. The project will update all existing science labs and add two additional labs.
The Warf Math and Science Building at Volunteer State Community College has undergone a $6 million renovation. The public is invited to see the results during a Grand Reopening Celebration on Friday, October 18. The renovation provides more than 9000 square feet of additional space. That includes a new Mechatronics lab with plenty of room for robotics and other training equipment. The work also upgraded the entire building, adding two new science labs, two student study areas, and more than 30 faculty offices. There will be an open house from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
