The Manitoba government is spending $9.2 million to upgrade 21 science labs across the province.
The second phase of the province’s Science Action Plan was highlighted Monday at Collège Béliveau, where the school will benefit from two upgraded labs. Renovations include replacement of millwork, fixtures, flooring, ceilings, lighting and ventilation fume hoods.
“These new labs will help students get excited about science and the possibility of taking advantage of the great career opportunities in science and technology available right here in Manitoba,” said Education and Advanced Learning Minister James Allum.
The project is expected to be completed in September 2015.
