The Firebird. Muscle car. Classical music. Gretsch guitar (:-)). AKA – The Phoenix. Mythical creature that was consumed by flames and then arose from the ashes. Old regenerated as new – emergence of new life, new adventures. Cultures around the world embrace their own versions of this myth.
Such emergence is taking place in the BIMS and Biology labs and spaces. We are now seeing the science facilities begin to take shape as the DEstruction is completed and the CONstruction ramps up. Today’s visit to the building showed metal studs going up to form the skeleton for the walls of the new floorplan. Outside, pipe was being cut and threaded to supply gas and water to specific locations in the new construction.
Can it all get done in two weeks? All the walls and case work and equipment and furniture? Who are we kidding? Extreme Home Makeover this is not – Ty and crew, where are you when we need you? My best guess is move-in and celebration will coincide with Homecoming 2010. However, with every day we will find ourselves one step closer to move-in and a new way of teaching and learning.
