Galbraith Marine Science Lab
Our modern and well equipped facilities in the Galbraith Marine Science Laboratory provide students with opportunities to work with field and laboratory equipment to study and explore the marine environment. The building houses several laboratory classrooms, aquarium rooms, a marine sediment core facility, an oceanography lab, a computer laboratory and a state-of-the-art auditorium. Our continuous flow-thru sea water system is pumped directly from TampaBay into our classroom and research facilities, allowing animals and algae to be maintained for extensive periods of time.
Other science buildings on campus house other advanced instrumentation and equipment including a DNA sequencer, UV visible spectrophotometer, freezers, incubators, and much more. Students are able to use these instruments in their courses and projects. The new Peter Armacost Library allows students access to scientific journals and databases.
Our science laboratories are equipped with Windows and Macintosh computers, which are linked to the internet and EckerdCollege intranet. Additionally, the recent purchase of several laptop computers for the marine science program allows students to record and analyze data while conducting research in the lab.
