About the Science Learning Center

We are here to help you:

  • Learn essential mathematical, graphing and laboratory skills before you need them in class. This ensures that all science students have the same opportunity for success in science courses regardless of educational background.

  • Practice using laboratory instruments at your own pace before you use them in lab. This allows you to spend laboratory time efficiently, and ensures that you can safely work with sensitive and expensive equipment.
