The general science building at Casey contains upper-atmosphere physics, electronics and general science facilities. The general science facilities, which are usually available over the summer, contain four main laboratories. Footwear such as shoes, 'joggers' etc. must be worn in the general science building. Boots or socks only will not be allowed. It is therefore advisable to take a spare pair of footwear that can be used in the laboratories.

The general science facilities include:

  • general laboratory
  • microscope room
  • preparation room
  • instrument room
  • wet lab
  • electronics workshop
  • limited office space

The laboratories are connected to station services, have hot and cold running water, facilities to pipe gases into most rooms and a central vacuum system. They also contain a water purification unit, automatic lab washer and fume cupboards. The room available (especially with office space), at times over the summer, may become crowded due to the number of scientists requiring use of the facilities
