Bogle Hall

Reorganization of Bogle Hall’s labs and classrooms will allow faculty to create a science experience in which students are consistently able to do more. Students will have increased opportunities to engage in critical and analytical thinking in a lab setting and to benefit even more fully from teachers’ individual feedback.

Building Project Benefits

  • Moving engineering and mathematics out of Bogle Hall allows for the reorganization and upgrade of laboratories and classrooms resulting in greater flexibility in core science class scheduling and offerings. 
  • The repurposed building will feature larger chemistry and biology laboratories and a central prep location, freeing up space in each lab for classes and potential long-term projects.
  • Additional teaching spaces will include demonstration classroom-labs (“clabs”) outfitted with gas and water, providing space for students to engage in more sustained and in-depth labs and undertake independent research projects.

The Center for Innovation and Collaboration’s impact will resonate across Blair’s curriculum: Its construction will allow for the realignment of spaces in Bogle Hallwhich currently houses all laboratory science classes, as well as engineering, some mathematics classes and the mathematics department officeto better facilitate the teaching of science.
