On Thursday, October 16 at 10 a.m., Montgomery College will welcome Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown as he presents the College with a check for nearly $30 million to support the construction of the new Rockville Science Center. This new science and engineering building will provide state-of-the-art classrooms and labs that will help the College meet the challenge of providing education and training for the next generation of scientists and engineers. 

The planned four-story building will be the new home to the departments of biology, chemistry and physics, engineering and geosciences on the Rockville Campus. Along with classrooms and labs, the science center will feature a greenhouse and a rooftop observatory. The building expects to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification from the United States Green Buildings Council. Construction of the center is expected to be complete in 2011.
