Set on a three-acre brownfield site, this former PECO generating station has been transformed into a multipurpose and multifaceted resource for the College and community. The first floor houses an aquaponics and hydroponics lab where students: build hydroponics units; grow tomatoes, strawberries, kale, lettuce, and hops, and participate in non-credit courses focusing on hydroponics gardening.
The second floor, Engineering and Design Space, is a clean technology area. It has been home to Robotics, a 3D designing and printing lab, and physics and engineering labs. In addition, the rooms are used for Solid Works 3D Software Certifications and non-credit Solid Works training.
Since the April 2016 opening, the third floor’s flexible and innovative space has held guest lecture seminars, meetings for both internal and external groups, poster sessions, the non-credit Software Development Academy, and the Immersion Essentials Science Camp.
