The Mary Brown Bullock Science Center, Agnes Scott College
Our Research Facilities
Agnes Scott College opened its 115,000 square foot, $36.5 million Mary Brown Bullock Science Center in spring 2003. The state-of-the-art building was designed in keeping with current standards for science education, technology, and safety. The facility houses the biology, chemistry, physics and psychology departments and includes laboratories for each faculty member for pursuit of collaborative research with students. Each department also has one or more student project labs, in addition to dedicated teaching labs. The Science Center houses more than $4 million in new research-quality instrumentation for the behavioral and biomedical sciences. The astronomy section of the Department of Physics and Astronomy occupies research and teaching space in the Science Center as well as Bradley Observatory and Delafield Planetarium, which houses a library, multimedia classroom, faculty offices, a darkroom, computer facilities for research and teaching, and a rooftop observation deck for astronomical viewing.
In addition, the college has made significant, fundamental, and recurring investments that have enabled astronomical research, namely: (1) renovating and expanding Bradley Observatory in 2000, (2) funding the College’s membership in the Southeastern Association for Research in Astronomy (SARA) in 2005, and (3) dedicating space in the Observatory for student-faculty research in 2011. In these ways, the College has provided a solid infrastructure to support continuing student-faculty research.
