The Science Resource Center is located in the Science Pavilion. The resources are used by the Biology, Chemistry, Health Technology, Math, Medical Laboratory Technician, Nutrition and Health students and instructors to supplement class, laboratory and individual study. Students can also sign up to use one of the group study/meeting rooms.
The center supports the principle that learning doesn’t have to stop once a student leaves the classroom; the scientific experience can continue at a time more convenient to the student. While learning is often thought to be a process of the mind, it is heavily influenced by the learner’s environment – the variety of stimuli, the social aspect of the setting, the spatial context, and even the amount of ambient light and sound have all been seen to affect the learning experience. The Science Resource Center, housed in a LEED-certified building, is well suited to the learning experience.
The center maintains an extensive collection of models, histology slides, charts and reference books as well as a
comprehensive library of CD-ROMs for 21 computers available for student use.
The center is open for all registered De Anza College students.
