Work Fmally Begins
On Lab Remodeling
The science department at Benson continued its
tradition of excellence this year and made major
efforts to improve its facilities, according to Mr. Bud
White, biology teacher. In room H201, exhaust hoods
were installed to allow experiments in "hard"
chemistry involving caustic chemicals. Room H203
was refurbished with new tables, plumbing and paint.
The major remodeling, though, went on downstairs in
the Social Room and surrounding area. Room H116
has a new purpose as a science lecture room. The
Social Room was partitioned into two new
laboratories, and the Faculty Lounge was also
converted into a laboratory.
Increasing the space used for science was not as
simple as taking over various rooms. For example, a
new room for the Faculty Lounge had to be found. lt
was decided that the Computer Room would move to
C-wing so room 212 could be used as a new Faculty
Lounge. The computers were moved to room C139,
which sophomore building construction students had
used for roofing and drywall practice. Typing was also
relocated to C139, where typing will be taught on
computers rather than typewriters.
The new science wing has been in the minds of
teachers for about 17 years, according to Mr. Robert
Franz, department head. " Our present facilities could
never handle the increased student load," he
explained. Besides the inadequate size and outmoded
equipment, some of the facilities were broken from
many years of use. When sinks in labs drain onto the
floor, proper experiments cannot be conducted, and
the attention of the students is diverted from learning.
Spring vacation 1985 was the original starting date
for the new science wing but some students wish it had
begun years ago. "They're making all these great
changes just in time for me to graduate, so I can't take
advantage of them," stated Graham Storey 1121.
