The project was a fast track summer project that included the addition of offices, locker rooms, and biology, physics and chemistry laboratory spaces. The March issue of the Francis W. Parker publication "The Live Creature" declares the new facilities and technology in the new science wing as being "second to none in the city of Chicago." The school now has more space to conduct experiments and modern equipment to improve accuracy. Laptop computers are now available for students in every science class. Students are also able to compare their lab results with other students in the class in real time due to the wireless network that enables the data entered by each student to appear plotted graphically on all of their computers. Not only can students see the results of their peers as they perform these experiments, but the network access available from these computers allows them to access saved data from all the computers on the school network. This allows the students the ability to look at their data, and compare and contrast it with others, at any time. Limited site access and a tight construction schedule required detailed planning and scheduling to accomplish the renovation and construction of this science facility.
