A modern home for the sciences.
Renovated and expanded in 2008, the Strosacker Science Center and Moss Family Laboratory Wing is well-equipped for the Departments of Biology, Chemistry/Biochemistry, and Physics. The Science Center is home to several laboratories including a human anatomy lab with cadavers, a general/organic chemistry lab, a microbiology/cell lab, a water lab housing simulated lake and stream environments, a 460-square-foot greenhouse, and the Daniel M. Fisk Museum of Natural History, which features two dinosaur skeletons. Opened in 1967, the building was named after Dr. Charles Strosacker, a chemist at Dow Chemical Company who invented Saran Wrap and gained 34 patents during his career.

Strosacker Science Center was opened in 1967 and named after Dr. Charles Strosacker, a chemist at Dow Chemical Company who invented Saran Wrap and gained thirty-four patents during his career.
The building provided a modern new home for the sciences, which had previously been housed in Knowlton Hall, built in the 1870s. A three-story addition and renovation in 2008 added 17,200 square feet to accommodate the growing programs of the Lee and Roland Witte Natural Sciences Division.
