Blair Academy science students will have a wide range of opportunities to immerse themselves in projects, technology and hands-on collaborative work. Once Bogle Hall is repurposed, we will enjoy expanded research capabilities and an infrastructure that supports analytical and inquiry-based learning.Kelly Hadden, SCIENCE DEPARTMENT CHAIR
The opening of the Chiang Center for Innovation and Collaboration has allowed for the realignment of spaces in Bogle Hall to better facilitate the teaching of science.
- Moving engineering and mathematics out of Bogle Hall has allowed for the reorganization and upgrade of its laboratories and classrooms, resulting in greater flexibility in core science class scheduling and offerings.
- Bogle Hall will gain a three-story addition with new classrooms, labs for physics, AP biology and advanced chemistry, and dedicated research space for long-term projects. In addition, each of Bogle Hall's existing labs and classrooms will receive extensive renovations and a prep space for chemistry labs and a departmental office will be created. Cowan Auditorium will be upgraded with new lighting and mechanical systems.
- The finished building will offer students and faculty more and better-equipped labs and classrooms designed to provide optimal space for hands-on, inquiry-based scientific learning.
