Days before the start of the 2019–2020 school year, St. Mark’s celebrated the culmination of the Science Center Project and more than five years of planning and construction.
Days after the rededication, the 2019–2020 school year got underway. As Fletcher Carron noted, "The first week in the renovated McDermott-Green Science Building was a hit. The updated labs are bright, clean, and spacious, and with more of them than before, teachers have increased flexibility to plan lab activities and set up demonstrations. Students were excited to finally get inside the building, and the new study rooms and public areas have been very popular for collaborative work."
The 25,000 square-foot McDermott-Green Science Building includes nine renovated labs, a conference room, two student study rooms, eight offices, and a faculty lounge. As the school year got underway, students were quick to take advantage of the spacious study areas in the McDermott-Green lobby, featuring three 275-gallon aquariums, as well as the couches and tables in the glass connectors.
