KSU to Open $21M Science Lab

The school's first facility dedicated entirely to scientific teaching and research will open at 9 a.m. Oct. 25.

By 2018, the Alliance for Science and Technology Research in America estimates that Georgia will need to fill 211,000 jobs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

And Kennesaw State University is doing its part to prepare students for those fields. The university's College of Science and Mathematics next Thursday will open its $21-million science lab addition.

The 73,000-square-foot building is KSU’s first facility dedicated entirely to scientific teaching and research.

"The building," the university said in a statement, "is designed to let professors do what they do best: teach tomorrow’s scientists; ask fundamental research questions; and make connections across disciplines."

KSU President Daniel S. Papp and others will be on hand for the 9 a.m. ceremony.
