There is a new space for K-12 students to explore science at Grace College in Kosciusko County.
The college was able to add onto its science building to make more room for the Lilly Center for Lakes and Streams.
“The Lilly Center had a couple closets and a few offices, and now they have a beautiful space for them to be able to educate our community and do research on our local lakes,” said Dr. Drew Flamm, the vice president of advancement at Grace College.
The science building at Grace College is about 40 years old but was recently renovated with the addition of the Dr. Dane A. Miller Science Complex, granting more space to the Lilly Center.
“With the Dr. Dane A. Miller Science Complex, now, for the first time, we’re able to do a lot of our research in house here where we can analyze our samples here, in this building, for much faster analysis time, so we can act on that data much more quickly,” said Dr. Nate Bosch, the director of the Lilly Center for Lakes and Streams.
