  Abstract: In 1999, the Sonderegger Science Center was constructed on the Edgewood Campus. It was the first kindergarten through college science facility in the nation. The grade school, high school and college that inhabit the Edgewood Campus all share the Science Center and teach all, or most, of their science classes within its walls. The charge to the faculty is to work together to maximize the expertise and resources of each institution to create a comprehensive and coordinated science experience for all students. In the 16 years since the building’s dedication, programs involving formal classroom science, informal science, science outreach, and faculty and student professional development have been developed and tested. In this talk, the general program will be discussed with an emphasis on the role of physics instruction and learning in creating a comprehensive science education program.
