Community College of Southern Nevada Science Center | CCSN

This science and community outreach center has formed the core of the Community College’s expanding sciences curriculum.  “It’s nice to finally have a place to call home,” astronomy professor David Batchelor said. “These classrooms and labs are gold to the future of Southern Nevada.”

 

This 75,000-sf facility contains 16 state-of-the-art teaching laboratories, 17 lecture classrooms, and a high-tech distance education studio.   The building exhibits sustainable practices in architecture and the sciences. Most notably, the design limits the impact of the Las Vegas climate through the use of shading elements that minimize the daily heat gain of the facility.
