New Applied Science Teaching Labs have opened in Building 14 as part of the pre-New Academic Street construction works.
Project: Applied Science Teaching Labs, Building 14
Architect: John Wardle
Commenced: 30 January 2015
Completed: 15 May 2015
The labs’ fit-out includes standard chemistry equipment such as hotplates, glassware, ovens, and small bench top analysis fittings. There are also various physics practical experiment kits, including an X-ray analysis unit, used for performing basic X-ray diffraction experiments.
Angela Crawford, School Manager, School of Applied Sciences said the modern teaching spaces were a clear improvement on labs the space replaces.
“We’ve had overall positive feedback from users. Student and staff like the modern feel of the teaching spaces.” She said.
The level 5 spaces, used by various Bachelor of Science and postgraduate research programs, have facilities for demonstrating areas of physics such as mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetism, optics and material properties.
