Science Hill

Two Wellesley College students work on a science experiment in a labratory

Our Science Center is built into a hill, at the top of which you’ll find Whitin Observatory and Global Flora Greenhouses. We’re updating all of those facilities to create the gold standard of undergraduate STEM education (and a neat extended metaphor): a Village of Sciences on Science Hill. Updates include a new observatory telescope, sustainable teaching and research greenhouses, studio teaching and lab spaces, a makerspace, and a horticulture and ecologylab. It takes a village to raise the next generation of paradigm-shifting women.
