The PEREC team was able to tour the Potomac Science Center this week. The building’s exterior is almost completed, with a dock under construction as well. The views overlooking the Potomac National Heritage Trail are incredible! Excitement about the research and teaching is sky high. Everyone at PEREC can’t wait to move in next spring.
On October 7, PEREC broke ground on what will become the new Potomac Science Center in Prince William County. Located on Belmont Bay, the new center will not only provide research opportunities for scientists, but will also provide educational opportunities for K-12 students. It will provide indoor, hands on labs for students, as well as provide opportunities for members of the community to become familiar with the riverside ecosystem. The center is set to open in Spring 2016.
