New State-of-the-Art Science Lab

For students in the health sciences, the ability to take all lab classes on the WITS campus is about to become a reality. No more traveling off site for labs, thanks to The Ben and Zelda Cohen Charitable Foundation Science Lab, a new state-of-the-art Science Lab due to be completed this summer.


The lab will host a Physics Lab, a Biology/Chemistry Lab and a Prep Room.

The scope of work includes renovations to two science classrooms, a prep room and an associated corridor. As part of the finish upgrades, each room received new ceilings, flooring, epoxy top casework and lab stations as well as new paint. In addition to the finishes, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and technology systems were updated to support the new labs. Each space is a combined classroom/lab area designed with twenty-four student workstation, as well as a teacher’s demonstration table.
