The Science Learning Center at the University of Houston-Downtown, located in Room N-604, is a state-of-the-art, multipurpose facility (2750 sq. ft.) dedicated to the support of science learning and teaching at many levels, all related to a wide variety of UHD science courses and special precollege and teacher professional development programs.
There are three rooms that constitute the SLC:
The main computer area - features 30 networked student computers committed to independent student use. These computers are used to access and study from educational software, take electronic quizzes, complete computer-based course assignments, or access the internet for science-related purposes. This area is equipped with a classnet system so that it may be used by classes and so that student work may be monitored.
The specimen study area - is dedicated to the study of non-computer based materials, including maps, fossils, rocks, prepared biological slides, anatomical models, molecular model kits, and science-related videos. Other materials are placed on reserve by professors as needed.
The SLC annex - is a model electronic classroom with 25 networked computers (Pentium III) and a master teacher's console equipped with a document camera for transparent and opaque projection, a CRT projector, a DVD/CD player, a videocassette player, a Pentium III computer, and an interactive touch-screen whiteboard. This classroom may be reserved for UHD-sponsored science activities such as undergraduate classes, teacher professional development and precollege science activities.
