Crews are putting the finishing touches on a brand new center dedicated to all things science at the Park School of Buffalo in Snyder.
“This really gives us an opportunity to update all of our technology, all of our spaces, all of the ways that we do science with kids,” said Jeremy Besch, Head of School.
The new building sits on the 34 acre campus of the Park School. It connects the campus to things in the nearby environment, like a pond.
“Students will be able to monitor the health of the pond by taking water samples, by noticing the frequency of different kinds of water life,” said Kennedy Schultz, Director of Studies.
The Science Center will include a man made stream that will flow into the pond.
“Our pond’s health has declined over the years so with this new feature I’m excited to see how it improves over time,” said Adrienne DeGroat, Science Teacher.
The facility includes state of the art classrooms, labs, and a field station. It will give students hands on experience and a sense of how science impacts our daily lives
“Park School has students here from ages 3 all the way up through seniors in high school, and every member of our community will use this building in one way or another,” said Besch.
Construction here at the Science Center is expected to be completed by Thanksgiving, it will be up and running and open to students by January.
