The Science Learning Center

Takoma Park / Silver Spring Campus

Who we are and what we do

The Science Learning Center (SLC) is located in the Science North Building, Room 101, on the Takoma Park Campus. We provide educational services and assistance for students enrolled in biology and physical science courses.  Included in these services are staff and student assistants who help you with your questions about material in those courses. The SLC also provides access to 40 internet connected computers. The SLC staff directs students to online resources, and provides supplemental software, physical models and microscopes and slides that support course material. The SLC functions as a supportive environment where students can receive academic assistance, study independently, or collaborate with fellow students to understand and master science coursework.  Our objective is to support our students and enable them to successfully complete their science courses.





All students must sign in on the computer located near the entrance of SN101.
