Purpose: The Science Resources Lab exists to assist students in learning the concepts of the sciences through one on one or small group interaction with faculty or a tutor and through the use of computers as well as other technologies and materials. The lab also supports required class assignments and projects. Non-science computer use is usually available, and the room is also mostly a quiet place to study.
Location: The Science Resources Lab is located in Building 2, Room 210 on the Quad-Cities Campus.
Materials: The Science Resources Lab has, but is not limited to, the following material and equipment: computers (Windows 7), printers, VCRs, microscopes and slides, rocks and minerals, human bones, dissection specimens, charts and models. Internet access is available.
Faculty/Tutors: The Science Resources Lab schedule indicates when the lab is open, the person who is on duty and their area of expertise. Copies of the schedule are available in 2-210. Many Natural Sciences and Engineering faculty members donate an office hour to be available in the lab. Tutors are advanced students or in one case a retired faculty member. Faculty/tutors have expertise in an area or areas of science. Faculty/tutors are in the lab to help students with equipment and concepts within their area of expertise. Students are helped on a first-come, first-served basis. The lab is a helpful and friendly place. Please come in and get acquainted.
Our main functions are as follows:
- Science tutoring on a walk-in, first-come, first-served basis.
- Study (not just science)
- Computer and printer use
- Materials use such as human models and bones, microscope slides, rocks and minerals, etc.
- Special projects
