There’s something new on the campus of Calvert Hall College in Towson.
It’s a 600-square foot, state-of-the-art greenhouse that will provide the school’s nearly 1,200 students with hands-on opportunities in biology, chemistry, and environmental science.
“It allows our young men, in science courses particularly, to apply the things they’ve learned in the classroom in a real-life situation, and it gets dirt under their fingernails,” said Brother James, the chairman of the Calvert Hall science department.
The greenhouse is a donation from Jack Noppinger Jr. a member of the Calvert Hall class of 1964.
“We instituted a new STEM program in our science curriculum last year, and this kind of takes our science program to a new level and keeps us scholastically on top of our game,” said Noppinger.
