A future-oriented report on secondary school science facilities is presented in this book by the National Science Teachers Association to provide assistance in school design. Examplar facilities of more than 140 observed schools are analyzed in connection with the social influences on science education and the evolving patterns in technology, instructional programs, and student-staff relations. Detailed descriptions are made in terms of instructional space, construction requirements, and management of instructional materials. The trend toward flexibility is emphasized in dealing with aspects of acoustics, internal walls, visual considerations, room furnishings, student groupings, utilities, and safety. Individual learner's needs are described as a major criterion, and consultations with architects are taken into account. The findings are summarized into: 1) Location of science facilities, 2) Alternative arrangement of facilities, 3) Laboratory furnishings, 4) Supply logistics, 5) Technological support, 6) Human environment, and 7) Community resource utilization. Besides illustrations, an annotated bibliography, a nomination form, and tables of environmental criteria are included in the appendices. The work of the Study Team was financially supported by the National Science Foundation. (CC)
