Community Science Center has a Concrete Foundation!
For my local Modesto area readers, here is one of my promised (threatened?) updates on the progress of our Community Science Center at Modesto Junior College. The building will eventually house the chemistry, physics, astronomy and geology/earth sciences programs, but will also include a greatly expanded Great Valley Museum, a planetarium, and an observatory. The building has a foundation! It is actually a physical presence after 10+ years of planning. The structure on the left will eventually be the planetarium. When completed, the center will be a marvelous community resource, especially for our children. We are looking forward to occupying the building in 2012!
