Marjorie May Braun ’36 Science Building

The Marjorie May Braun Science Building was designed to support the existing science programs at
Westridge School for Girls. The new two-story building is actually an addition to the Ranney building
and houses Lower and Middle School science classooms. The outdoor garden, created for use as an
exterior classroom, includes a pond ecosystem, student planting areas and worktables. The idea of
using buildings as teaching instruments would later be expanded upon with the completion of the
Sustainable Science Building for Westridge School for Girls in 2010.
