University of Colorado at Boulder
Tuesday, October 21

Attendees experienced several unique laboratory designs during a tour of the University of Colorado's Boulder campus.

Discovery Learning Center

Upon entering the Center, you may be surprised at the openness of a facility devoted to engineering research. The abundance of windows combined with outreach exhibits and a 16-panel digital video wall will help you enjoy a fascinating view into the world of discovery, from the new space mission control room to micro/nano-scale research captured on the video screen.

Drescher Undergraduate Engineering Laboratory

This building houses the nationally renowned Integrated Teaching and Learning Laboratory, which provides a dynamic experiential learning environment for undergraduate students. It was constructed with more than 300 sensors incorporated into its structure. In addition, many of the internal systems, including the ductwork and wiring, were left exposed, so that the building itself serves as a learning resource for students of all ages.

The tour also highlighted several other facilities including the Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology Department. Housed in two adjoining buildings, this department has more than 120,000 square feet of laboratory space at its disposal.

Following the tour, a dinner reception was held on campus.
