Admissions & Aid
A large unused room in the lower level of Ingersoll Hall has been transformed into a glistening new SCALE-UP classroom where two classes, Physics 1 and Calculus 1, are being taught as SCALE-UP classes.
For more information on SCALE-UP, visit the SCALE-UP website or the Science Education and Resource Center at Carleton College.
