Grand Opening of the Science Learning Centre
Today marks the opening of the Science Learning Centre in the McLaughlin Library! Students can stop by for assistance with mathematics and statistics, physics and chemistry. This is a place where students can get one-on-one help from TA’s and other upper year students and they can use it to study both individually and as a group.
First year science courses can be especially challenging and extra support is often needed. In the past, support services for Math, Stats, Chemistry and Physics were spread across campus and many first year students had difficulty accessing these resources. But now, thanks to our new Science Learning Centre, these resources are all concentrated on the Third Floor of the library! This is a great enhancement to our support services for the 5000 science, math and statistics students and the University is very pleased to announce its opening.
While I’m sure this centre will get busy during midterms and exams, it’s a great resource. Students from high-enrolment and challenging courses will have access to their TA’s for one-on-one help. If your student is struggling with concepts from class, I would encourage them to check this out!
I took calculus when I was in first year and the Math help centre was incredibly useful. It’s like having access to a tutor for free! I don’t think I would have passed that course without their help. If your student is struggling with any of these courses, encourage them to check out this great resource.
