S7: Innovations and Renovations: Designing the Teaching Laboratory

Organizer: Lynne O’Connell (Boston College, USA)

Presider: Lynne O’Connell (Boston College, USA)

This symposium will focus on the physical design of teaching laboratory spaces. Whether a school is constructing a new science building or renovating an old one, many factors must be taken into consideration to create the optimum learning environment for students in a chemistry lab setting. Speakers are encouraged to discuss innovative facility and equipment designs, issues related to the use of space, roadblocks encountered and overcome during the building phase, and any other information that would be helpful to those who endeavor to design a teaching laboratory.
