Baird Lab (CCB 104A) Frequently Asked Questions

Answer: 
With the student laptop requirement, we have noted a significant decrease in the use of general access desktops over the past several years.  In order to make the best use of space, the Baird Lab has been moved to 104A to house any specialized physical lab equipment that the College’s instructional activities require, while providing a "technology enhanced" classroom for lab based courses.  The space reclaimed from this project was used to add an additional Instructor lab and offices to support new CoC programs.
