We see Fabian García as a “living laboratory” for our students, and many classes are held in this science center. It is located near the main campus and students can get real field experience in just a few minutes.

Laurie: Although Fabian Garcia is from NMS. Although it is one of the few science centers, there are no shortcomings in experiments, or there are no gaps in the research that the center can handle.

“The science center uses about half of the farm for“ traditional ”farming, which means large-scale field experiments on farming and often dripping irrigation,” Louri said. “Half of it is in the form of experiments in greenhouses, microwaves and even algae ponds. There is really no way to summarize the extensive research negotiations that are taking place in Fabian Garcia. We look forward to welcoming our stakeholders so that everyone can practice for themselves.
