Education & Training

Supporting All Levels of Education

A key element of the Applied Research Center’s role is supporting efforts to expand and empower STEM instruction at all levels of education in South Carolina and beyond.




Within ARC, educators will find a 2,000-square-foot lab focused on serving the needs of K-12 schools and higher education, including technical colleges. The laboratory offers opportunities for both hands-on instruction and distance learning. Educators can also tap into the expertise of professional researchers at the Savannah River National Laboratory and others using ARC’s facilities.


The ARC’s state-of-the art conference facility is ideal for educational uses, bringing learners into an environment devoted to the advancement of science. Our meeting room can accommodate up to 125 students, and is wired for abundant audio-visual capabilities. Our full kitchen is ideal for caterers, and our commons area provides space for displays of student projects.
