Also see a 360-degree image of Barnes Science Center (provided by a non-CC web site).
Barnes Science Center, constructed in 1988, tripled the previous laboratory space available to students and faculty. Scientific instruments, exceptional for a school this size, are used by students for various science classes. For example, the college has a scanning electron microscope, a mass spectrometer, a nuclear magnetic resonance instrument (NMR), and an infra-red spectrometer. In addition, Barnes includes four variable environment greenhouses (desert to tropical), an animal colony in the basement, and an observation dome in the roof equipped with a 16-inch reflecting telescope for astronomy. Barnes contains classrooms and offices for the anthropology, biology, chemistry, and physics departments. Barnes also houses academic computing. It is connected to Olin Hall, the next feature on the tour.
