Purdue has the chemistry lab of the future today, complete with all-digital lab manuals and notebooks

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Configuring socially distanced lab spaces for 2,900 general chemistry students was logistically impossible, so Purdue University’s beginning chemistry labs are taking place online this fall, the next best thing to being there.

Or maybe better.

Well before the virus pandemic, Purdue’s Department of Chemistry was working on a “next-generation digital learning environment for chemistry.” That it happened to be highly useful in a pandemic is just fortuitous. While the virus accelerated development over the summer, the motive from the start in 2018 was to better apply technology to improve the student learning experience.

A core element of that is the development of a digital lab manual and digital lab notebook, which Purdue chemistry students on campus and online are using for the first time during the fall semester, replacing the traditional paper versions.

In a digital version, the traditional lab manual becomes an interactive multimedia resource

Katerra and Michael Green Architecture complete the Catalyst Building in Spokane, Washington

The Catalyst Building, a new mass timber educational structure by MGA | Michael Green Architecture and built by Katerra, opened last week in Spokane, Washington. The five-story, 159,000-square-foot building incorporates about 140,000 cubic feet of locally sourced mass timber Katerra products and is expected to meet Net Zero and Zero Carbon standards. MGA said in a statement that it would be “one of the most sustainable buildings in North America.”

The Catalyst Building is part of the South Landing “eco-district” initiated by energy company Avista’s chairman, Scott Morris. Morris’s idea was “to create the five smartest blocks in the world,” according to a press release. The development is now backed by various partners, including Avista, Katerra, MGA, construction engineering company McKinstry, and Eastern Washington University (EWU).

EWU will be the anchor tenant of the new building. The school’s College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics; College of Business; College of
