A major grant from The Carson Family Charitable Trust entirely funded the building of a state-of-the-art science center in Notre Dame School. The science center has facilities for hands-on experimentation in biology, chemistry and physics, along with Internet access in the laboratory setting.
The design of the Center also includes the latest safety equipment and a prep room with storage cabinets and large work areas. The lab is equipped with water, electricity and gas as well as fume hoods, showers and eyewashes for safety. Two high powered professional oil immersion microscopes for detailed microscopy studies were recently donated to the science center.
