After 35 years, Science Learning Center Director Jim McKibben has retired!

His days have been filled
With hammers and saws and nails and awls,
Snakes and lizards and fish and frogs ...
But now it's time for something new: Retirement!

Best wishes, and happy travels, Jim! Thank you for an amazing journey with science learning in the SLC.

Welcome, CNSM Science Learning Center Task Force!

The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics is pleased to announce that beginning Monday, October 3, 2016, the Science Learning Center will come under the direction of the Science Education Department. A task force has been appointed to consider how best to build upon the strong foundation laid by Jim McKibben in order to take the SLC to the next level of excellence utilizing evidence-based best practices.
