Center of Excellence:

Bringing Education and Science Together

The B.E.S.T. (Bringing Education and Science Together) Laboratory operates cooperatively between the School of Education and The College of Science, Engineering and Technology (CSET). Projects involve fundamental and applied research, integration of technology in education, and innovative curriculum development. Students and faculty engage in modeling chemistry, atmospheric science, and science education research with state-of-the-art equipment and software.

Scientific facilities include:

  • SGI Onyx2 supercomputer with Immersadesk 2 display system
  • UNIX workstations
  • CIMEL 318 Sunphotometer (part of Aeronet)
  • HP 500PS large format printer

These are used for computational chemistry, virtual reality modeling, and scientific visualization.

In addition, for digital multimedia curriculum development, educational research and dissemination, the Lab maintains:

  • Macintosh G4 and Intel Pentium computers
  • DV camcorders and digital still cameras
  • Scanners, DVD and CD writers

Software expertise is maintained in industry standard software to support all these activities.

The B.E.S.T. Lab offers scholarship and research opportunities to students in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer science, and education.
