The groundbreaking for LSC-University Park’s new Center for Science & Innovation begins at 10 a.m. on Thursday, April 28, near the intersection of University Park Campus Drive and Compaq Center Drive West.

Designed by Kirksey Architecture, the three-story structure will have 12 science labs for chemistry and biology, an “innovation space” with a tutoring area and a sprawling geology teaching wall. In addition, students and visitors alike can view celestial objects through a variety of telescopes from the observation deck atop the Center of Science & Innovation.

LSC-University Park President Shah Ardalan said the 50,000-square-foot building, due to open in Fall 2017, will help the College meet the academic needs of its rapidly growing population.
