Opened in 2006, CSM’s award-winning Science Building houses modern lecture halls, faculty offices and state of the art laboratories that support all of the science programs. The 68,000 square foot, three-story Science Building includes the following academic departments: astronomy, biological sciences, chemistry, earth sciences, physics and health sciences.
The Planetarium is an exciting venue for students and members of the public to be introduced to astronomy and its application to everyday life. The 97-seat facility is equipped with dual Evan & Sutherland Digistar 3 SP2 HD projectors and a GOTO Chronos opto-mechanical space simulator. The Planetarium and rooftop observatory, with a retractable roof for fixed telescopes, has become a hub for star gazers across the San Francisco Bay Area.
