Nov. 12 Open House to Showcase New Lab
Waubonsee Community College will showcase its newly remodeled laboratory technology facility at a free community open house on Wednesday, Nov. 12. The event will run from 1:30 to 6:30 p.m. in room 102 of Weigel Hall on the north side of the Sugar Grove Campus, Route 47 at Waubonsee Drive.
The lab includes five new spectroscopy and chromatography devices that support the college’s laboratory technology program, which debuted in fall 2013. Found in a variety of industries, lab technicians assist scientists in conducting experiments, researching and developing new products, performing quality tests, and producing a chemical or biological product.
The lab tech program and accompanying lab space are funded through a $2.8 million Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant from the U.S. Department of Labor.
