California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
This publication was designed to provide assistance to California school personnel and architects in the design of new science facilities. Following the introduction, chapter 1 discusses the enhancement of science programs through architectural design. Chapter 2 describes architectural requirements and regulations for science-instruction facilities in California, and the third chapter outlines steps in the planning process. The next three chapters offer guidelines for elementary-, middle-, and high-school science facilities. Planning the science complex from site development to occupancy is described in chapter 7, and requirements for furnishings and appliances are delineated in chapter 8. Cost estimates are provided in the final chapter. Forty-nine figures are included. Appendices contain checklists for the total science complex, the laboratory/classroom, and the science preparation/storage area. (LMI)
