The Science Building is home to the Christian Classics Ethereal Library along with the Clean Water Institute of Calvin College. You can also find the pre-professional health, psychology, nursing and biology departments in this building.


Christian Classics Ethereal Library

The mission of the Christian Classics Ethereal Library (CCEL) is to build up the church by making classic Christian literature widely available and promoting its use for edification and study by interested Christians, seekers and scholars. The CCEL accomplishes this by selecting, collecting, distributing, and promoting valuable literature through the World Wide Web and other media.

Clean Water Institue of Calvin College

The Clean Water Institute of Calvin College is committed to an attainable goal. “It’s relatively easy to find water and treat water,” says director David Wunder. The hard part is maintaining water treatment and making it sustainable. That’s what makes the multidisciplinary efforts of CWICC so valuable.


Biological Safety Cabinet

Maintains safe, sterile environment for working with cultured mammalian cells. Can be used for measuring how drugs affect cell growth.

Flow Cytometer

Measures fluorescently labeled structures in or on cells. Can be applied to identify leukemia cells or the amount of DNA in individual cells.

Maldi-Tof Mass Spectrometer

The Matrix-assisted laser desorption-ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) is an important tool in the analysis of biomolecules.
