September, 2011 -- Montgomery College to Host Dedication Ceremony for the New Science Center at the Rockville Campus, Friday, September 23

WHO: The Montgomery College Board of Trustees, President DeRionne Pollard, and state and county elected officials, including Council President Valerie Ervin and County Executive Isiah Leggett;

WHEN: FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23; 10 A.M.;

WHERE: MONTGOMERY COLLEGE-ROCKVILLE, SCIENCE CENTER, 51 MANNAKEE STREET, ROCKVILLE; (The Science Center is on the southwest corner of Rockville Campus, adjacent to the stormwater management pond);

WHAT: Montgomery College will officially dedicate the new Science Center at the Rockville Campus during a ribbon-cutting ceremony, Friday, September 23. With its four-story atrium, new laboratories, recitation rooms, and faculty offices, the new 140,000-square-foot instructional building provides much-needed space for students increasingly seeking affordable, high-quality programs in science, engineering, and mathematics programs. Among the building’s highlights are 29 labs, an engineering shop, and greenhouse.

Montgomery College has the largest engineering program of any community college in the United States with more than 1,100 students enrolled in the engineering transfer program. The new Science Center at the Rockville Campus ensures both engineering and science students greater access to enhanced learning environments, 21st-century labs, and successful futures—in the workforce and transferring to four-year universities across the nation.

The College expects to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification from the United States Green Building Council for its environmentally friendly design and construction, which include a green roof, solar panels, regional and recycled construction materials.
