The Science Building: Past, Present & Future
Construction of the original historic Science Building was completed in the summer of 1936 and housed physics, chemistry and biology. In addition to its laboratories and classrooms, the building offered an attached auditorium to accommodate approximately 500 people and a conservatory and animal room constructed in a tower above the third floor. A general museum, six photographic darkrooms, a culture room, and a cold room completed the facility.
TWU continues to lead in science education with the completion of an 80,000-square-foot complex on the Denton campus. The Complex utilizes the latest instructional teaching technology to educate the state’s future scientists, teachers and healthcare providers. It also includes an automated greenhouse – seldom found in a university setting – supporting cutting-edge research into the role of plants in the prevention of cancer. In keeping with the university’s goal of reducing its carbon footprint, the building design includes many energy-saving features.
The new structure of the Complex officially opens February 2011. The existing building is under renovation and scheduled to open fall 2011.
