LSC laboratories are fully equipped with models and specimens for the study of anatomy and physiology, thermal cyclers and electrophoresis equipment for molecular biology, microscopes and incubators for microbiology, and the full complement of supplies and equipment for other general biology and environmental science classes. Additionally, there are computers at each laboratory station for use during laboratory exercises.
Kristi Heintz is the Science Lab and Environmental Sustainability Coordinator. Students interested in working in the biology and environmental science laboratories should contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The biology department will have additional laboratories in the new science and health building that is presently under construction.
Beautiful Miller Creek runs through the Lake Superior College Campus. Biology instructors Glenn Merrick and David Israel have worked along with other LSC faculty and staff to develop a hiking trail along the creek. An interpretive guide describing the biology and ecology of the stream is found here. General biology, ecology, and environmental science courses may use the stream for laboratory investigations.
