Sheridan College will host an open house for the new Mars Agriculture Center on February 28, 2017. All are welcome to attend and the Center will be open to the public from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., with tours of the facility guided by current students. There will also be students and faculty in class working on their current studies. The open house is FREE, and light refreshments will be served.

The Mars Ag Center provides the College with a 16,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art building with top-notch learning environments for a variety of disciplines within the Sheridan College Ag Department. The building is attached to the existing Science Center, which underwent a renovation that updated existing space during summer 2015.

The Mars Ag Center allows for more experiential agricultural learning with features such as an animal science lab, a soils and agroecology lab, a herbarium, a teaching greenhouse, a computerized commodities trading floor classroom, and other high-tech classrooms.
