Learn in Our State-of-the-Art Science Center

Good science requires the proper tools. That's why, in the fall of 2011, JCC opened a state-of-the-art Science Center. Built to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) specifications, the building boasts a staggering amount of green features, including a garden roof, furniture made out of recycled materials, and a two-well geothermal well system. It also features dedicated biotechnology facilities, such as dark rooms and a tissue culture facility.
