The University of Georgia will break ground on its newest building-the 122,500-square-foot Science Learning Center-on Aug. 26th. The ceremony will include remarks from Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal, University System of Georgia Chancellor Hank Huckaby, UGA President Jere W. Morehead and UGA student Lydia Babcock-Adams.

The public is invited to attend.
The Science Learning Center will be situated on South Campus adjacent to Pharmacy South and across from the Miller Plant Sciences Building.
The center will cost $44.7 million and was funded by Deal and the Georgia General Assembly.
33 instructional labs will be designed specifically for interactive learning in core undergraduate science courses. The facility also will contain two 280-seat lecture halls and two 72-seat classrooms focused heavily on group-work class participation and technology.
The building is scheduled to open in fall 2016.
