Construction began on the University of Kentucky's new Don & Cathy Jacobs Science Building in Fall 2014. Open in Fall 2016, the building’s design places integrated, engaged learning as its centerpiece.
The science building emphasizes environmental responsibility, utilizing natural light, outdoor teaching areas and potential rainwater recycling. But the value of the design extends far beyond its construction - the innovative lecture halls and classrooms inside will help the College realize its dream of improving science education through exciting new models of engaged in-class teaching. The teaching space in the Don & Cathy Jacobs Science Building will be composed of next-generation lecture halls and groundbreaking TEAL (Technology Enabled Active Learning) classrooms.
