Tea with the provost
Galgon will present a brief talk about the sustainability features of the facility before embarking on a guided and informative tour of the ultra-modern building.
The tour will start from outside the ISE Lab at noon on Friday, May 9, and is expected to take about one hour.
The ISE Lab celebrated its grand opening on Oct. 17, 2013, and was constructed following the standards of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Silver designation. It is an important hub of teaching and research on campus.
The 194,000-square-foot facility brings together students and faculty from various disciplines to teach, learn and conduct research in a collaborative environment.
ISE Lab engages students and is designed to stimulate excitement about science and engineering. It has four problem-based learning instructional laboratories that feature lab spaces adjoining classrooms so students can discuss a problem and then immediately test a solution. UD faculty members have designed curricula to optimally utilize these rooms.
ISE Lab is also a new home to the University of Delaware Energy Institute, the Delaware Environmental Institute and the Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation.
