Shineman Center throws open its new doors to the public

OSWEGO – From the marvels of a state-of-the-art planetarium to the breathtaking view from the meteorology observation deck, SUNY Oswego’s $118 million Richard S. Shineman Center for Science, Engineering and Innovation drew the oohs and aahs of hundreds of community and campus visitors at a recent open house.

Pictured, an animated show in the new planetarium draws a crowd for a journey through the universe, including the Milky Way galaxy.

Those touring the Shineman Center saw demonstrations of such equipment as a scanning electron microscope, a greenhouse with variable-ecosystem growth chambers and an inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer.

They visited laboratories including quantum physics, human-computer interaction, microscopy and zoology.

Besides the planetarium, popular stops included a display of student research in the Nucleus atrium, a robotics demonstration and the Molecular Biology and Biochemistry Center.

The 230,000-square-foot building, which opened for classes Aug. 26, took nearly 10 years to plan, design and build, including the past three years of construction employing 350 workers.
