Science Lives Here!

Opened in the fall of 2011, Jamestown Community College's Science Center meets LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification standards and is a showplace for sustainability in building design and operation. The center includes a number of "green" features that enable energy conservation and promote environmentally-conscious thinking.The front of the JCC Science Center

Housed within the Science Center are JCC's associate degrees in liberal arts and sciences: math and science, environmental science, and biotechnology. The center features state-of-the-art classrooms, labs, and prep rooms for courses in biology, biotechnology, chemistry, and geology as well as a student study area, loft lounge, greenhouse, and vegetative roof.

The JCC science faculty, staff, and administration have a vision for our Science Center as

  • a center of academic excellence in progressive science education, research, and technology initiatives, providing students with top-quality science education throughout our new fully-equipped, state-of-the-art building
  • a showcase of cutting-edge technology and active teaching/learning spaces for new and emerging programs such as biotechnology and environmental science, while supporting and enhancing our existing offerings in biology, chemistry, physics, geology, engineering, math, and other disciplines throughout the college
  • a source of inspiration and demonstration of environmental stewardship, sustainability, high-performance energy-efficiency, and holistic green design
  • a place for community outreach, collaboration, and connection for students, staff, and visitors alike
